Designed especially for municipal professionals, Municipal Business By-law Drafting Manual is an invaluable hands-on guide to formulating by-laws that comply with this landmark legislation.

Coverage includes:

  • Highlights the three provincial approaches to granting licensing powers to municipalities: before 1996, 1996, and 2001
  • The legal concepts you need to know in order to draft valid by-laws
  • The key matters that should be considered prior to drafting a by-law including rationale for licensing, advertising rules for public meetings, and limitations on licensing fees
  • The organization and style of by-laws including appropriate language and structure, as well as how to correctly insert amendments
