This is a petition to the City of Courtenay to allow residents to raise laying chickens.

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,000!


In this present climate of uncertainty, we would respectfully ask the City of Courtenay Mayor and Council to consider allowing the keeping of laying chickens by residents in their back yards. Food security is a tantamount issue, and this is a simple way that a family could take steps to do this. As per the Victoria, BC, bylaw;

“It is lawful to keep poultry (chickens, ducks, geese). Roosters are prohibited. There is no maximum number of poultry permitted, but the number must be consistent with use for personal egg consumption”.

Mayor Bob Wells and Councillors, please consider this request for change.
