Since October 21, 2020, a new version has come into force of By-law No. 1340 on the Management and protection of cats and dogs. This by-law is in accordance with the Provincial By-law. This regulation contains minimum mandatory standards that may directly affect you.
In addition to the more severe fines, here are two important measures imposed by the provincial by-law that the Town must enforce:
- For all dogs, the length of the leash shall not exceed 1.85m.
- Dogs that weigh 20 kg or more must always be leashed with a halter or harness (except in dog run facilities).
Please note that the registration of the animal (cat or dog) to obtain a licence (tag) is maintained.
