New Community Safety Bylaws Announced

Lands Department Update to the Community – Community Safety Bylaws
The Lands Department has been working hard on developing three new safety Bylaws for Tsawout.
These Bylaws will ensure better enforcement of safety concerns within SȾÁUTW̱ community. The Bylaws
are as follows;

  • SȾÁUTW̱ First Nation Nuisance Premises Law 2020-05, a Bylaw to regulate and prohibit unsightly and
    nuisance premises;
  • SȾÁUTW̱ First Nation Disorderly Conduct Law 2020-06, a Bylaw to regulate and prohibit disorderly
    conduct and nuisances;
  • SȾÁUTW̱ First Nation Safe Premises and Community Protection Law 2020-07, a Bylaw to regulate and
    encourage safety and protection of SȾÁUTW̱ community.
    (This Bylaw is still in draft form and being completed to be presented for Council approval shortly.)

The approved Bylaws are available publicly below for review.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Lands Department staff at the Main Administration Office @ 250-652-9101. The overarching goal of these Bylaws is to encourage a safer Tsawout Community for all residents.
