About Bylaws

A bylaw is a document that describes rules, regulations, and requirements for the conduct of the City, residents of the City and those who visit the City.  They are an extension of the laws put in place at a higher level of government, and serve to clarify but not contradict those laws.

The bylaw library contains downloadable, printable copies of municipal bylaws. Use the search tool above to find a specific bylaw or browse the most commonly accessed bylaws. 

In some instances, bylaws have been consolidated for easier interpretation. Consolidated bylaws are convenience copies, and while we make every effort to ensure the accuracy of the bylaws on our website, it is advisable to refer to the original bylaw and amendment bylaws.

For assistance with the above, please contact Legislative Services at 604-591-4132 or clerks@surrey.ca.
