Why do I need to register my dog?

  • A valid licence (tag) on your dog’s collar is the fastest way to contact you if your dog is lost
  • A responsible pet owner not only looks after their pet’s health and wellness, but makes sure their pet is a positive addition to the community
  • It is a requirement of the City’s Dog Bylaw 3429/2009.
  • Funds the Spay/Neuter Program
  • Allows for more accurate statistical information to help with funding
  • Provides resources to adopt unclaimed dogs

Important Information:

  • Licences are valid from January 1st to December 31st of each year and are a flat fee at any point of the year when you obtain your dog tag
  • There is a maximum of three dogs per dwelling unit
  • Alterations to the account, including contact information or address changes, must be made in writing by emailing or completing the Change of Address form.
