City to Host Virtual Information Session for Proposed Changes to the Vacant and Derelict Building By-Law

December 7, 2023

BRANDON, MB - The City of Brandon is hosting a virtual information session on proposed changes to the Vacant and Derelict Building By-Law.

The proposed changes to this by-law will remove enforcement barriers and allow administration to more actively pursue a proactive enforcement approach downtown.

The virtual information session will be on Thursday, December 14, 2023 at 4 p.m.

Registration is required to attend. To sign up, please contact the City of Brandon's Building Safety Manager, Murray Fischer, at 204-729-2151 or email An invitation link will be sent in advance to those registered.
