These "Bylaws at a Glance" are not the legal bylaws of the strata.  These are the main points of our bylaws for tenants.  Owners should, at some point, familiarize themselves with the full bylaws document.
 

Bylaws at a Glance - Enjoyable Living Guidelines
 

Bylaws can feel like a list of DONT’s but they are intended to be a safeguard for enjoyable living for residents.  Imagine what our parkade would look like if we allowed storage in the stalls or what it would be like to take your dog for a walk if there were other unleashed dogs everywhere.  We have bylaws to protect the residents and owners from the few people who might ruin community life for the many.

We have compiled a short list of the most frequently referred to bylaws and rules for your information. The actual full set of bylaws of the strata corporation can be downloaded from our website at http://waterscapescommunity.com/forms
