This by-law regulates the annual obtaining of a license by owners of cats and dogs, among other things. It also lists places where animals are not permitted on the territory and constrains certain practices regarding the sale of pets in specialized stores.

Since 2020, municipalities are required to enforce the provisions of the provincial by-law to promote the protection of persons by establishing a framework with regard to dogs. This regulation contains minimum mandatory standards that may directly affect you. Therefore, to ensure that you are aware of all the rules applicable to a dog and its care, you should consult not only    By-law No. 1340, but also the provincial by-law available below.
