Local Government Act:

  
CHID’s Letters Patent, applicable sections of the
Local Government Act, and other applicable provincial statutes outline the powers that can be exercised by the Board of Trustees.  These powers include the ability to enact and enforce its regulations and charges, to assess and collect taxes, to acquire, hold and dispose of lands, to borrow money and to expropriate lands required to carry out its functions.  The Board of Trustees exercise these powers through the passage of resolutions and bylaws.
