General Penalty Bylaw
The General Penalty Bylaw was established to provide penalties the courts may impose upon any person convicted of contravening a bylaw of the City of Regina. This bylaw fills the gap that exists where a bylaw does not provide any penalty of fine or imprisonment.
The maximum penalties provided by The Cities Act are:
- For individuals from $2,000 to $10,000 and imprisonment for not more than one year.
- For corporations from $5,000 to $25,000 and imprisonment of directors for not more than one year.
- In the case of a continuing offense, to a further daily fine not exceeding $2,000.
