Series consists of by-laws for the Metropolitan Corporation of Greater Winnipeg. By-laws were passed by the Metropolitan Council. Included in this series are schedules, zoning plans, notices, Canadian Electrical Code manuals and other supporting documents. The series documents the initial take over of municipal functions by Metro, as well as municipal regulations such as those related to traffic, streets, building inspections, zoning, parks, town planning, supply of power, bridges, and water throughout Metro’s existence.
By-laws are arranged numerically and are stapled or folded into pages originally folded into four parts. All by-laws have been flattened for storage and preservation purposes. Staples have been removed only in cases where attachments were stapled shut. Supporting documents are mainly kept with their corresponding by-laws but some plans were separated and stored in map cabinets due to their size and for conservation.
Series consists of by-laws 1-272, 274-704, 706, 708-710, 712-1557, 1559-1651, 1653, 1655-1720, 1723-1729, 1732-1795, 1797-1799, and 1801-1928 inclusively. By-laws missing from this series can be found in lower sub-series with the exception of 273, 1730, and 1731. By-law numbers for 1730-1731 were issued but not used, and the same is suspected for 273 but it is unclear.
The records also consist of 3 sub-series. For a more detailed description, see file list.
