How will the bylaw be enforced?

An education-first approach will be used to inform the owner of a non-residential premises when they are not in compliance with the bylaw, by way of administrative warnings and education. Town of Banff staff would reach out, provide educational resources, and collaborate with the establishment for up to a month before enforcing fines, with the shared goal being to reach compliance.

In the case compliance is not reached, Municipal Enforcement will issue warnings and voluntary payments (fines) as listed in the bylaw.
