What kind of bylaw are you looking for?

Consolidated bylaws

For convenience, the most frequently used bylaws have been consolidated. In a consolidated bylaw, the original bylaw (or "parent" bylaw) is updated to include all of the amendments to that bylaw. Conduct your search in the VIEW CONSOLIDATED BYLAWS section. You can browse alphabetically or by category. You can also search by keyword.

Individual bylaws

Each individual bylaw has a unique number. An individual bylaw may be a "parent" bylaw or it may be an amending bylaw. Conduct your search in the SEARCH INDIVIDUAL BYLAWS section. You can search for an individual bylaw by number, enactment date, or keyword. You can search all bylaws or only those bylaws that are in force.
