General Penalty Bylaw

The General Penalty Bylaw No. 2003-29 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.


This page is an overview of these regulations. Refer to the bylaw for detailed information. The Office of the City Clerk keeps the latest version of each bylaw on file and will provide a copy upon request.
