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 Islands), Electoral Area B – Lazo North, and Electoral Area C – Puntledge and Black Creek.
“Dog licencing makes it easier to help locate a lost dog and return them home as quickly as possible,” explains Amanda Yasinski, CVRD Senior Manager of Building and Bylaw Compliance.
Licences are valid annually 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 dog licence.
Currently, the cost to licence a spayed or neutered dog in the electoral areas is $10, and $25 for a non-spayed or neutered dog. Failure to obtain a dog licence may be subject to a $100 fine.
There are several locations for purchasing licences within the regional district:
Comox Valley Regional District
770 Harmston Avenue, Courtenay
BC SPCA Comox Valley & District
1668 Ryan Road East, Comox

The Comox Valley Regional District is a partnership of three electoral areas and three municipalities operating on the unceded traditional territory of the K’ómoks First Nation, the traditional keepers of the land. The members of the regional district work collaboratively on providing sustainable services for the benefit of the diverse urban and rural areas of the Comox Valley.
