The town’s Enforcement Services division is committed to fostering a safe, welcoming and pleasant community for residents and visitors. By-law enforcement officers work in the community to educate the public about Oakville by-laws, respond to complaints in a timely manner and conduct investigations related to by-law offences, and issue warnings and penalties for by-law violations when needed.
Enforcement Services staff are also a valuable resource for residents and the community. You can call and speak with someone if you have questions or concerns about town by-laws or other enforcement issues.
