Bylaw Enforcement Complaint Form

Kitimat's bylaws support a safe, clean and kind community.  

Enforcement of our bylaws often depends on complaints being brought to our attention.  When a Bylaw Enforcement Complaint Form is submitted we can then address the situation and help increase bylaw compliance throughout the community.

Our preference is to resolve bylaw infractions through communication and education, and pursue enforcement action only as a last resort.

To submit a complaint, please enter information below and answer  the questions to the best of your ability.

Bylaw Enforcement Procedures

1. Bylaw enforcement investigation will be commenced on submission of written complaints. Complainants will be issued written confirmation of their complaint. If the preliminary investigation determines there is basis for enforcement action pursuant to the criteria set out in Section 3 below, the normal bylaw enforcement procedure will be followed. If the investigation finds there is no basis for enforcement, the complainant will be informed their complaint does not meet the criteria. Upon completion of the investigation of legitimate complaints, the complainant will be sent written notification that a resolution has been reached. Please keep in mind that certain bylaw enforcement investigations can take several months before reaching conclusion. It is not the practice of the District of Kitimat to necessarily seek a final legal remedy for all alleged infractions.

2. Please do not have several people sign the same complaint, rather, if a residence or individual is allegedly in violation of District bylaws and several neighbours consider it a nuisance, please fill out individual complaint forms. This assists in substantiating the alleged offenses.

3. As a matter of practice, the identity of the complainant and the written complaint itself shall not be disclosed to the alleged violator or any member of the public except for as outlined above. In addition, the response of the alleged violator shall not be made public or disclosed to the complainant except as outlined above.

4. Preliminary investigation will occur to determine if the activity or structure being complained about is in contravention of the District Municipal Code.
