ABOUT THE PROJECT

Pets are important to Calgarians, and the bylaw helps create a safe environment for Calgary. Calgarians’ needs have changed since the Responsible Pet Ownership Bylaw was updated 12 years ago. An update to the Responsible Pet Ownership Bylaw ensures that The City of Calgary is reaching as many pet owners as possible and is creating effective compliance and education by recognizing new trends that will impact Calgarians’ and businesses. The bylaw is being reviewed as part of a Calgary Community Standards workplan item that came out of Service Plans and Budgets 2019 – 2022.

Goals for engagement are:

  • Understand what Calgarians think is working with the current regulations, and what is not working.
  • Seek input on what else should be included in the Bylaw.

  • YOUR INPUT

    This review provided opportunities for you to have input into potential changes to the bylaw. We wanted to hear from pet owners, non-pet owners, and people who work with, and interact with, pets. Feedback was collected online from Wednesday, February 26 to March 18, 2020.

    There are six areas of focus for this engagement. You were invited to provide your input into any, or all, of the focus areas by clicking on the tiles below.

    We also invited you to share with us what you think of when you hear the words 'responsible pet ownership'.
