|Zoning By-Law (Règlement de zonage)||
Regulations governing the use of the land and the types of constructions in each designated area. In the public interest, it belongs to the municipality to divide its territory into areas. This allows to specify the permitted uses and the required standards in order to control the usage in each zone.
The first zoning attempts were made in San Francisco around 1885 to prohibit laundry shops. These regulations were found to be valid by the Courts despite their obvious discriminatory character against Chinese immigrants.
