Bill-16, An Act Respecting Local Governance Reform, 2022, no.2 stipulates in Section 21.4(1)
21.4(1) Despite subsection 40(3) of the Local Governance Act, the by-laws of a restructured local government shall not apply to the areas that are annexed to it as a result of the restructuring until such time as a bylaw is specifically made in that regard by the council or the Minister, as the case may be.

As a result, the Town’s By-laws require approval by the Council of the Town of Grand Bay-Westfield.

Over the course of 2023, an ongoing review of all By-laws will be undertaken and brought to Council for their consideration.


The Town of Grand Bay-Westfield encourages residents to provide feedback on any of the following By-laws, to the attention of John Enns-Wind, Chief Administrative Officer:
