Bylaw Enforcement Officer

The Town of Golden needs to renew its Bylaw Enforcement Officer position.

This position is largely focused on the enforcement of the bylaws of the Town of Golden, including regular interaction with the public, liaising with the RCMP detachment, and communicating with relevant community agencies.

Outstanding tact on the job is critical, taking initiative where appropriate on apparent and known infractions before they trigger public complaints or procedural action, while also ensuring that complaints and compliance with municipal bylaws are dealt with in a firm and fair manner. Golden implements the Bylaw Notice Enforcement system; this position is key to its continued success.

The position also researches and recommends changes to regulatory frameworks, bylaws, and policies.  Excellent communication skills and demeanour are imperative in order to successfully work with the public and co-workers in a co-operative, professional manner, as a front line representative of the Town.

Candidates must be highly organized, hold a valid and current Driver's Licence and be able to communicate courteously, tactfully, impartially, and firmly, both orally and in writing.  Attitude and temperament are critical character traits for this position.

We would prefer a candidate already having a Level 1 Bylaw Enforcement and Investigative Skills Certificate or Bylaw Enforcement Officer 2 Certificate, equivalent certification through RCMP or Municipal Police Training, or 5 years’ experience as a municipal bylaw enforcement officer. 

This is a regular, full time position within the CUPE Local 2309 bargaining unit with a competitive benefits package.  A job description is available at Town Hall, and on our website at

Golden is an exceptional place to live - but there’s not enough room here to talk about it.  Check out and go to the links in the top banner for information on tourism, culture, and economic development.  Around us are massive mountains, two big heritage rivers, six national parks, an incomparable ski resort, and we’re just over 2 hours to Calgary.
