Dog Licences

Licensing your dog

All dogs over the age of eight weeks must wear licence tags at all times. An annual licence for a neutered or spayed dog is $25 before January 31 and $31.25 after January 31.

The dog tag licence you received in 2017 is a permanent tag. An annual licence renewal fee is still required each year but you will no longer receive a new tag as you have in the past.

Unaltered dogs are $62.50 before January 31 and $75 after January 31. Lost tags can be replaced at a cost of $6.25

Please report any animal control bylaw violations to the Animal Control Office at 604.815.6866.
