Council adopted Bowen Island Municipality's Pesticide Use Control Bylaw No. 556, 2021 on March 14th, 2022.
The pesticide bylaw was developed because residents were concerned about the risks that pesticides pose to the health and well-being of the community and the environment. This affects pesticide use on outdoor trees, shurbs, flowers, ornamental gardens and plants, and turf on public or private lands within Bowen Island Municipality.
