Regulations Pertaining to Swimming Pools

The City of Dauphin would like to advise residents of the regulations pertaining to new or previously existing outdoor swimming pools on residential properties. In accordance with the Manitoba Building Code and the City of Dauphin Zoning Bylaw 04/2015, a swimming pool that exceeds 2 feet in depth requires the following:

  • A permit from the City of Dauphin to be obtained prior to the installation and setup;
  • A permanent, protective fence enclosure no shorter than 5 feet in height;
  • A self-closing gate equipped with a lockable latch to prevent unauthorized entry;
  • An inspection by the Building Inspector after completion of installation of the pool and required enclosure but prior to filling of the pool.
