Dog licences now available for electoral areas

The Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) requires all dogs over six months of age to be licenced every year within Electoral Area A – Baynes Sound (except Hornby and Denman), Electoral Area B – Lazo North and Electoral Area C – Puntledge and Black Creek.

Starting November 15, residents within these electoral areas will be able to purchase their 2017 licence. Licences are valid from January 1 until December 31 each year. Residents who live within the City of Courtenay, Town of Comox and Village of Cumberland must contact their municipal office to obtain their annual dog licence.

“Each year we receive dozen of calls of lost dogs needing to find their way back home,” explains Derald Lewis, Manager of Bylaw Compliance and Special Investigations with the CVRD. “Having your dog licenced and ensuring the tag is on their collar helps your beloved pet finds its way back home safely.”

The cost to licence a spayed or neutered dog is five dollars and for a non-spayed or neutered dog is $15. There are several locations for purchasing the licences within the regional district:
