Wildlife Attractant Bylaw

On October 6, 2020, a delegation from the Sunshine Coast Bear Alliance requested that Council consider the adoption of a separate Wildlife Attractant Bylaw, which would “provide residents, commercial establishments and visitors with the concise measures that need to be undertaken to prevent attracting bears and other wildlife into our urban areas.” The delegation also presented a petition to adopt a separate wildlife attractant bylaw and improve enforcement, which was signed by 518 people.

On October 20, 2020, Council officially resolved that staff bring back a report on the delegation’s request. That report is now pending.
