Bear Smart

The Village of Lions Bay is a Bear Smart Community.

Lions Bay's Waste Management Bylaw focuses on areas in the Village where there are regular wildlife and bear interactions. Following calls about bears getting into garbage, residents may receive an "Official Notice" requiring that garbage be placed in secure cans with tight fitting lids. As well, residents will be required to store garbage either indoors or inside a secure enclosure between collection days. Following this notice, residents who fail to securely enclose their garbage could receive a $320 fine.

It is the resident's responsibility to clean up garbage and debris resulting from wildlife accessing unsecured household garbage.
