Wildlife Feeding Regulation By-law

Establish and maintain clear boundaries with wildlife

  • Enjoy and observe wildlife from a safe distance 
  • Don’t feed wildlife or leave out any food that may attract them
  • Prevent wildlife from accessing sources of food or your garbage

Vancouver is home to many types of wildlife, and we want you to enjoy the wildlife while being safe.

Respecting wildlife allows you and animals to peacefully coexist.

Our by-law strictly prohibits the feeding of wildlife anywhere in Vancouver. The best thing you can do for a wild animal is give it space and observe from afar.
