With a new year right around the corner, the Comox Valley Regional District is reminding everyone that dog licenses are now available for 2021. 

Any dog over the age of six months must be licenced every year within the Comox Valley and surrounding areas including Electoral Area A, excluding Hornby and Denman Islands, and Electoral Electoral Area C which includes Puntledge and Black Creek.

Licences will be valid from January 1st, 2021 until December 31st.

Residents who live within the City of Courtenay, Town of Comox and Village of Cumberland must contact their municipal office to obtain their annual dog licence.

“Dog licences help ensure that your lost pet quickly finds its way back home,” explains Amanda Yasinski, Manager of Bylaw Compliance with the CVRD. 

The cost to licence a spayed or neutered dog is five dollars and for a non-spayed or neutered dog is $15 with the price expected to go up next year.
