Everyday noise from people, stereos, and more
City noise can sometimes be too much: really loud late night parties, or even kids just being kids.
The Noise Control Bylaw aims to balance noise from most activities in a way that respects everyone's right to relative comfort, within reason.
In simple terms, this means: don't disturb the peace and quiet of your neighbours.
The bylaw specifically regulates noise from:
- Carpet-cleaning equipment within vehicles
- Lawn mowers and weed eaters
- TVs, radios, stereos, amplifiers, and musical instruments
- Parties and gatherings
- People shouting
- Pressure washers
It doesn't regulate noise from:
- Children playing
- Church bells
- Heavy walking
- People moving furniture
- Slamming doors
- Wind chimes
