Animal & Bylaw Services Update

Addressing the Problem…

DYK-addressing-webOften times, when members of Animal & Bylaw Services or Alberta Health Services/Emergency Medical Services respond to a call, time is of the essence.

When accessing a property from an alley, the difficulty comes when addresses are not clearly displayed at the back of the home.  It is even more difficult in areas where houses are built in close proximity to one another.

For your safety, please be aware that under the Community Standards Bylaw, your address must be clearly displayed at the back of your property, if adjacent to an alley or public walkway.

Calgary Fire, CPS and Animal & Bylaw Services appreciate your support and assistance.

Be Street Smart Safe

  • Do not place any material in lanes, streets, sidewalks or City right-of-ways.


  • Vehicles parked on driveways may not block sidewalks or boulevards
  • Do not leave unregistered, uninsured vehicles on City streets or lanes.*
