By-law Enforcement

The Town of Smiths Falls is committed to providing a professional level of by-law enforcement service.  The primary goals of the Town's by-law enforcement are:

  • Public safety
  • Protection of residents' peaceful enjoyment of their property
  • Improvement of the overall appearance of the community
  • Improvement of quality of life for residents

Enforcement is conducted on both a proactive and reactive basis but our first approach in enforcement work is education. Wherever possible, staff work with residents to resolve violations by achieving compliance, ensuring that steps are taken to resolve the initial violation. Our by-law enforcement team investigates, enforces and educates residents on municipal bylaws including:

Report an Issue

Reporting a by-law infraction can be done through telephone, e-mail, or in-person visit to the Town Hall office (see contact information below). You must identify yourself when making a complaint as the Township is unable to accept anonymous complaints. Please be prepared to provide your name, address and telephone number to staff. The Township keeps the identity of every complainant confidential under the Municipal Freedom of Information and Privacy Protection Act unless the complainant has agreed to be identified.

You can report an issue with the Town on a wide variety of by-law enforcement topics and our Bylaw Enforcement representatives will follow up with your concern.
