Noise Regulation Bylaw


Under the District of Squamish Noise Regulation Bylaw No. 2312, 2014, it is an offence for Construction Noise to be made from construction activity;

  • before 7:00 a.m. or after 9:00 p.m. on any day other than Saturday, Sunday or a statutory holiday; or
  • before 8:00 a.m. or after 7:00 p.m. on Saturdays, Sundays or statutory holidays;

“Construction Noise” means any noise, sound or vibration made on or associated with a construction site including one’s own property:

  • in carrying on work in connection with the construction, reconstruction, alteration, repair, or demolition of any building structure or thing;
  • in carrying on any excavation, filling or other operation; or
  • in moving, or operating any machine, engine or equipment;

A Temporary Noise Exemption Permit may be obtained for those construction activities that are exceptionally noisy or for construction activity that must extend beyond the allowable hours because of exigent circumstances. 

Please ensure all trades are in compliance.  

Construction work which does not generate noise is allowed outside of these hours.
