Tickets & Fines
In All Fairness
A Bylaw Enforcement Officer may issue a Municipal Ticket Information (MTI) notice to a person or company for a violation to a District Bylaw. Disputes are heard in the Provincial Court of British Columbia by a Provincial Court Judge.
The Municipal Ticketing Information Bylaw and its subsequent amendments provides further detail regarding enforcement by our Bylaw Enforcement Officers and includes a list of our ticketable offences.
Disputing a Ticket
To dispute a MTI violation you should first speak with the Bylaw Officer to discuss your concerns. If you cannot resolve the issue, your dispute will be referred to the Provincial Court for a hearing. When attending to file a dispute, be sure to bring a copy of the MTI or the following information:
- The ticket number from the top right hand corner of the face of the ticket,
- Your full name and mailing address,
- The date of offence and the bylaw name and section of the offence.

- You must include your name and phone number, complaints cannot be made anonymously.
- Please include as much information as possible regarding your complaint.
