Central Manitoulin By-Laws and Enforcement

Generally, the powers of your municipality must be exercised by council through by-law. By-laws are passed at council meetings.   

Below you will find information on by-law enforcement and a by-law archive from 1998 to present.

How do I file a complaint?

Telephone calls will not be accepted unless it is a public health and safety issue!

Municipal by-laws are enforced on a written complaint basis only. You can file a bylaw complaint by filling out the complaint form.

Complaint forms must include your name, address and contact information. Please include the following:

  • address
  • description
  • photos if using an online method

All information provided will remain confidential up until which time it is required in court.

For noise complaints, please contact the police non-emergency line at 1-888-310-1122.

The complaint will not be investigated if:

  • Anonymous or third party
  • Incomplete form
  • Considered malicious or vexatious.

Civil matters not within our jurisdiction:

  • private right-of-way disputes,
  • trespassing, and
  • neighbour disputes over property lines, tree cutting or fence locations

If the matter cannot be resolved between you and your neighbour, you may wish to consult legal counsel.
