What is a Bylaw?

A bylaw​ is a law created by the local government, in our case The Town of Wadena, to meet the needs of citizens and resolve issues. Bylaws apply within the town limits. In Saskatchewan, a local government's powers and duties are given to them by the Province of Saskatchewan under The Municipalities Act, including the power to enact bylaws.

The Town may create bylaws for a municipal purpose in relation to those matters listed in The Municipalities Act. Matters include:
  • Public safety
  • Citizen health and welfare
  • Protection of private and public property
  • Nuisances and unsightly premises
  • Public places
  • Transportation
  • Business activities
  • Services provided by the Town
  • Utilities
  • Animals
  • Enforcement
