By-Law 796 requires pets to be registered with the City of Iqaluit each year no later than the 5th day of January. Loose dogs or cats registered and have a City tag attached can easily be returned and at no cost if the owner can be located prior to impoundment, however once the animal is impounded, all associated fees and costs for its return will be incurred by the owner.

Dog registration is $35 for spayed/neutered dogs and $55 for non-spayed/neutered dogs. Cat registration is $15 for spayed/neutered cats and $30 for non-spayed/neutered cats.

To register your pet, download and complete an application form (download form below). Payment can be made in person with the completed form at City Hall and an Annual Tag will be provided to you.
