Survey addresses dog control expansion for Electoral Area D

Monday, January 11, 2021

The Columbia Shuswap Regional District (CSRD) is looking for residents of Electoral Area D to share your thoughts with us, so we know what kind of dog control service would serve you best.

An online survey is now available at the link below to gather information regarding a change to the current dog control services provided by the CSRD.

Take survey

The deadline to submit surveys is February 12, 2021.

Dog control issues continue to be a source of complaints to the CSRD and the Electoral Area D Director. Due to this, the CSRD is looking to expand the dog control service to all of Electoral Area D in 2022.

Electoral Area D includes the areas of Deep Creek, Ranchero, Gardom Lake, the Salmon Valley, Silver Creek and Falkland.

Currently, a dog control service only applies to the Ranchero area of Electoral Area D, which includes enforcement of aggressive dogs, roaming dogs, and barking complaints and a requirement for dog licencing.

There is no dog control service operating in the rest of Electoral Area D. This means, if there is a concern with aggressive or roaming dogs in those areas, the CSRD has no jurisdiction to act.  

Survey results will be provided to Electoral Area D Director Rene Talbot and the CSRD Board for information to help guide decision-making. To help the CSRD get the best information possible and ensure your voice is heard, we encourage all Electoral Area D residents to take the survey.
