What's happeningAnnual permits begin in 2022
Beginning January 1, 2022, all residents with backyard hens will need to renew their backyard hen permit annually. This will help us track where hens are located in the city so that you can be reached and notified in the case of a disease outbreak.
Permits and renewals are free of charge and take just a few minutes to complete. Permits must be renewed by January 15, each year.
Important note Raising other animals for meat, fibre, milk, eggs, or other products (animal husbandry) is not currently permitted in the City of Vancouver.
