Bylaws

The following bylaws include the text of the original bylaws and any amending bylaws.  They are provided on this page for general information only.  Every effort is made to ensure their accuracy, but in the event that they differ from the original documents held at the Village Office, the originals are to be considered as the definitive references.

Urban Municipalities, such as the Village of Elbow, derive their powers from the Provincial Government, in particular The Municipalities Act.

For other Provincial Government Statutes, visit the Queen’s Printer.
