Animal Control

Beaumont has adopted a community-minded approach to having a pet in your family. Responsible pet ownership will be an ongoing promotion throughout the program. We all have accountability to ensure that our pets can be integrated into the community in a safe and enjoyable manner.

A few key elements of responsible pet ownership are:

  • Licencing your pet and having permanent identification
  • Spaying or neutering as a best practice
  • Proper positive socialization with other dogs or people

If you have located a stray cat or dog:

  • Please try to identify the animal through a licence/tag or other identifiers
  • If Municipal Enforcement is not available please contact the RCMP for assistance 
  • Stray animals cannot be impounded without contacting an officer first
All dogs and cats over the age of 6 months that reside in Beaumont must have an animal license.


Traffic Enforcement



The following roadways have been identified as traffic enforcement priorities:
  • The 50 Street corridor, which is not only the main access point for the majority of businesses in Beaumont, but also used by a significant portion of out-of-town travellers.
  • Patrols of 50 Street and 50 Avenue during the peak times of congestion during the morning and evening traffic rush of commuters.
  • All school zones in Beaumont are in effect weekdays from 7:30 a.m. through 4:30 p.m. inclusive.
  • Patrols of school zones before and after school times when children are arriving to and leaving from schools.
  • Weekend and evening patrols of residential and commercial areas including parking lots when traffic is higher.
  • Observation of all intersections during patrols as almost half of all collisions occurred within these areas.
Community Peace Officers conduct proactive patrols and dedicated traffic operations in strategic areas to create a positive effect on driver awareness while decreasing speeds and improving overall traffic collision avoidance.
