Local Government Bylaw Adjudication Survey

The Province, in consultation with UBCM, has released a survey to obtain local government feedback on the current bylaw adjudication system in British Columbia. Interested parties are requested to complete the survey by August 5, 2016.

The content of the survey is based partially on the July 6, 2016 consultation session between local governments and the Province’s Court Services Branch, where several attendees suggested utilizing this methodology to obtain information necessary to inform potential policy direction. In addition to background information on cost and frequency of bylaw notices/adjudications, the survey requests local government perspectives on the current program model, and offers the opportunity to make recommendations for future program development.

In 2013, the Province’s Court Services Branch organized a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) to select roster organizations to assist in managing the program. Two roster organizations were selected, with one or both subsequently entering into bylaw adjudication contracts with participating local governments. Anticipating that the contracts between local governments and roster organizations will expire by November 31, 2016 provides the impetus and opportunity for a review of the program model.

If you have any questions about this survey or the current review of the program model, please contact Alvin Lau, Senior Policy Analyst, Court Services Branch.
