Current Bylaws and Policies

Bylaws are legal documents containing rules passed by a majority of the trustees.  Prior to January 2009 a bylaw enacted by a board of trustees did not come into effect until it was registered with the Inspector of Municipalities. 
Following a two-year consultative process, the legislation was changed to allow specific types of bylaws to come into effect as soon as they are enacted by the board of trustees.  This includes the following: Tolls, Agreements, Reserve Fund Establishment/Disbursement, CEC Disbursement, Assessment, Connection Charge, Miscellaneous Charge and Officer Position Establishment.
Please note, some of the older bylaws that are still current are not yet available in electronic format.
