It is your responsibility to ensure that your dog has a valid dog license as per  By-Law No. 5358 

Dog licenses are FREE and provide the following:

  • Access to the Selkirk Dog Park
  • Peace of mind that your dog will be returned to you quickly and safely
  • Cost savings: If your animal is found without a license you could face a fine 


Obtaining a license from the City can now be done online!
