Scope and content

Forms part of Fonds 1. Series consists of by-laws for the City of Winnipeg pre-unicity (1874-1971). By-laws are municipal laws that were passed or amended by City Council. By-laws relate to City land development, regulations, local improvements, street names/openings/closings, authorization of agreements, finance/taxation, governance/administration, and amendments to previous by-laws.

Original by-laws dating 1874-1971 exist in a set of trifolds and are numbered 1-19876. By-laws are numbered chronologically according to date created.

Notes area

Physical condition

Condition of trifolds ranges from good to fragile. Most have edge wear and staple holes, and some should be handled with care. By-laws are entirely handwritten until ca. 1900, when some type appears as well. Bound books are generally in good condition, although the bindings and covers of some volumes are fragile.
