Scope and content

Series consists of records which represent the continuing ordinances passed by Council to deal with internal management of the municipality’s civic administration and political offices and to exercise its powers in the realm of local regulatory functions.
As the By-Laws represent the final decisions of Council on all matters brought before it, they provide an excellent source of evidence vis-a-vis the functions and activities of the Council as well as the civic administration. In addition, the series offers information relating to all manner of topical subjects and local personalities.

Immediate source of acquisition


Files for this series are arranged chronologically. Commencing in 1931, the municipality indexed the By-Laws. Indices thus precede each annual aggregate of such records and are distinguished by green markers located in the right-hand corner of the folder tab in which the index is located. For the period 1850-1930, an index has been compiled by Archives Staff (see Appendix in Finding Aid). Please note: missing By-Laws for years 1850-1853 appear in Box 23 (III) O.S.
