In the News

Responsible Dog Ownership Survey

In November 2015, Municipal Licensing and Standards reported to Licensing & Standards Committee on the results of the Responsible Dog Ownership Review. These results have also provided us with insight for the next phase of the review.

We committed in the last report to making by-law amendments, an education plan and enforcement strategy and reporting on those in the fall of 2016. One of the goals of the review is to provide recommendations on how the City can effectively respond to incidents of dog bites and dogs that may pose a risk to public safety.

We are consulting with the public again through this survey about the by-law changes proposed.  See more information on the Responsible Dog Behaviour Review and our current ML&S Public Consultations

Unregistered and Illegally-Built Homes

It is illegal in Ontario to build and sell a new home for resale without being registered with Tarion Warranty Corporation and enrolling the home in the warranty program. See Toronto Star article on this issue.



New Membership Category

The BVA By-laws have been revised to include a new membership class
"Friends of the Association", which will include persons living outside the boundaries of Bayview Village but with 'common bonds' (such as having lived in Bayview Village previously) to the Association. Such members will pay dues but not have BVA voting rights. They will however enjoy all other rights and privileges of membership.
