Section 3 of the North Bay Police Service By-Law Parades and Processions #1-72 stipulates that "no parade, procession or public demonstration shall be held and no person shall join in or march with or drive, operate or ride on any vehicle or ride a horse or other any animal in any parade, procession or public demonstration on any street in the City of North Bay unless the Chief of Police has granted, in writing, a permit for such parade, procession or public demonstration".

Notifying the North Bay Police Service of parades, processions or public demonstrations occurring within the City allows the Service the opportunity to best allocate manpower and provide support or assistance if required. Applying for a Parade Permit also ensures the safety of all persons concerned.
