Welcome to the AMANS Municipal By-law and Policy Library. The Library serves as a central repository for all Nova Scotia municipal by-laws and policies that are currently in effect.
By-law and Policy Submissions
This page will remain a work-in-progress as by-laws and policies are adopted, amended or repealed by Nova Scotia municipalities.
If you are a municipality and have a by-law or policy that you would like to submit, please contact the AMANS Senior Policy Analyst.
Finding By-laws and Policies
By-laws and policies are grouped by municipality and can by accessed via the sidebar. You may also find by-laws and policies by using the search function below.
The search function will search document titles and text inside documents. Please note, the search function will only return items that match the exact phrase entered.
Still can’t find the information you are looking for? Contact the AMANS Senior Policy Analyst for assistance.
Documents may be downloaded individually by pressing the document title, or as a batch download.
To download multiple documents as a batch, select the documents you wish to download and then press the download selected button at the top of the page. You will then be prompted to download the selected documents as a zip file.
Please note, that the batch download function may not function depending on your browser settings.
