Bylaws & Policies
Bylaws are laws created by the Town of Banff generally under the  authority of the Municipal Government Act (Alberta). They are enforced by Peace Officers or Development Officers.

To pass bylaws, Council must give them three readings (three separate approvals) at Council meetings. The public is encouraged to provide input. If you are curious about how bylaws are passed, visit What is a Bylaw?

Policies provide overarching standards for decision making and operations within local government. They are not typically enforceable by law, but they can help an organization operate consistently. Policies are approved by Council.

Procedures are series of interrelated steps that are taken by Town staff to implement a policy. Procedures are approved by the Town Manager.
