Permits for dogs and cats
Montréal has adopted a new animal control by-law which is in effect from October 3, 2016. All dog and cat guardians must get a permit or risk being fined. Please note that all permits and tags issued prior to the coming into force of the new by-law are valid through December 31, 2016. All permits issued after this date will be valid through December 31, 2017. The permit is valid anywhere within Montréal's city limits.
