Recent court challenges are having a serious impact on by-law drafting and enforceability, and now more than ever, municipalities need to know their legal limits before enacting or revising existing by-laws. Without this knowledge, municipal officials run the risk of wasting precious time, money and resources drafting unenforceable and unconstitutional by-laws.

That is why The Canadian Institute’s 5th National Summit on “Creating and Enforcing Municipal By-Laws” is once again bringing together top city solicitors, expert municipal lawyers from private practice, leading by-law enforcement officials and prosecutors from across Canada to provide the practical tools and strategies you need to:

• MAINTAIN clean, safe and prosperous municipalities
• AVOID common drafting errors and get back to the basics of by-law drafting
• ENACT by-laws within the scope of municipal powers and avoid the unnecessary expense of court challenges
• DEVELOP and IMPLEMENT effective by-law enforcement strategies that address the needs of your government and community
• FULFILL the municipality’s role as environmental protector

Plus! Make the most of your conference experience by attending our interactive pre-conference workshops on “Conflict Resolution Skills for By-Law Enforcement Officials” and “Mastering the Art of Drafting Enforceable By-Laws”.
