How to Submit a Bylaw Complaint

A bylaw complaint is a formal written request to have an alleged bylaw infraction investigated by a bylaw enforcement officer. To ensure bylaw complaints and comments are responded to as quickly and comprehensively as possible, the Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) has created a complaint package for complainants to fill out and return.

Bylaw Complaint Form

If you submit a bylaw complaint, know that:

  • Anonymity of the complainant will be maintained between the complainant and the alleged offender except where disclosure is required or necessary in a court of law. 
  • Completed bylaw complaint forms are treated as formal legal documents, even if sent electronically. See BC’s Electronic Transactions Act for more details. 

Bylaw Enforcement

Bylaw enforcement officers and other authorized persons investigate complaints received by the public regarding non-compliance and alleged bylaw violations. Complaints are responded to on a priority basis.
