Information on temporary permits that allow a permit holder to exceed the noise limits of the Community Standards Bylaw.

A noise exemption permit is a temporary permit that allows for exemptions to the  Community Standards Bylaw 14600 . Applicants must be able to explain the type of noise to be expected and justify their reasons for exceeding noise limits. While this permit allows for a reasonable increase in noise based on a specific activity, permits may be revoked at any time.

Private functions such as wedding receptions, birthday parties and family gatherings do not qualify for an exemption and will not be granted a permit.
