Where does a bylaw come from???

The birth of a bylaw…

  • 01

    There are three levels of government; Federal, Territorial and Municipal

  • 02

    The Northwest Territories, Cities, Towns and Villages Act gives municipalities powers to enact Bylaws

  • 03

    The Territorial Government in turn gets their power from the federal government

  • 04

    Bylaws must comply with the CTV Act and the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms

  • 05

    A bylaw must bear a certification by the SAO that the bylaw has been made in accordance with the requirements of the CITIES, TOWNS AND VILLAGES ACT and the bylaws of the Village of Fort Simpson
