How To Report A Noise Infraction

Public Service Announcement

Post Date:05/01/2017

Whitehorse – City Council recently approved amendments to the Maintenance Bylaw regarding nuisance noise.

Nuisance noise is considered to be any unreasonable noise or sound which disturbs the quiet, rest, or comfort of any person in the community.

Residents are able to report any suspected noise infractions by calling Bylaw Services at 667-2111. Helpful information to provide includes:

  • your name, address, and phone number;
  • date and time frame the noise was created;
  • location of the noise;
  • the type of noise;
  • if it is a vehicle, the license plate number of the vehicle and a description.

For more information, contact David Pruden, Manager Bylaw Services at 668-8317 or david.pruden@whitehorse.ca

Background:

In 2016, Council heard concerns of noise in residential areas at town hall meetings. Council then directed administration to undertake a review of the noise provisions of the Maintenance Bylaw. As a part of the review process, Bylaw Services consulted with local businesses, Kwanlin Dün First Nation, and the Ta'an Kwächän Council.
