Municipal bylaws are regulations adopted by communities (municipalities) in Nova Scotia. They are different from provincial laws (also called “Acts”). Bylaws have effect only within the municipalities in which they are passed. Bylaws may include parking rules, zoning regulations, business licensing, and other regulations specific to the community. They are passed and enforced by municipal governments.
To learn more about municipal bylaws in your area, contact your local municipality. You can find your municipality’s contact information in the Community Profiles section.
