The Province of Saskatchewan has delegated authority to the City of Moose Jaw to regulate certain civil and property matters. Passing bylaws is a mechanism used by the City to meet this responsibility.
Information is requested on some bylaws more than others. These bylaws are available in an Adobe Reader format. Additional bylaws will be added at a later date.
See the text based list below.
These Bylaws are provided solely for research convenience. Official bylaws and any amendments are available from the City Clerk/Solicitor’s Department and must be consulted for purposes of interpretation and application of the law. A copy of the official bylaw and its amendments are available upon request – Contact Us
Not all bylaws are available online. For further assistance, contact the City Clerk/Solicitor’s Department by telephone at (306) 694-4424 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Bylaw Enforcement Department’s role is to promote, facilitate and enforce general compliance with the provisions of City bylaws that pertain to the safety and security of the community. To meet this mandate our Municipal Bylaw Enforcement Officers field complaints from citizens, other City Departments, and outside agencies. They interpret bylaws, monitor and investigate matters, mediate, and enforce using education, warning, and legal recourse as appropriate to each particular case. The goal of the Bylaw Enforcement Department is to achieve voluntary compliance through education and information. Citizens are given the opportunity to correct an offence and comply before more serious enforcement action is considered. The Bylaw Department may need to take direct action however if there is an immediate health or safety concern.
Bylaw Enforcement Officers are available Monday through Friday 8:30 am to 5:00 pm

Bees in Moose Jaw
The City of Moose Jaw does not enforce bees or beekeeping. This is governed by the Provincial Apiaries Act. The Apiaries Act provides regulations regarding the collection, care and registration of bees in Saskatchewan. However, all interested beekeepers in the City must submit information outlining the name, address and contact information for the site owner, confirmation of Provincial Registration, confirmation of location of hives in relation to the property, and the number of hives located on the property.
For questions about beekeeping, please contact a Provincial Specialist in Apiculture at (306) 980-6198 or (306) 953-2773
Reporting Honey Bee swarms
According to the Regina and District Bee Club, bees will swarm when they need more space. Swarms are a natural way for bees to divide the hive. The association’s primary interest is in protecting and rescuing honey bees. For honeybee swarms, please call (306) 540-3111 or report the swarm on their website.
For wasps or other insect issues, please contact a pest control company.
