As per subparagraph 3.1 of By-Law 17-096, passed on September 11, 2017, City residents who owned chickens prior to the passing of the By-Law have 90 days (December 9th, 2017) to register their chickens:

3.1 Any person who keeps, possesses or harbours chickens other than in an agricultural zone in the City shall within 90 calendar days of the passing of this By-law, remove the animal, or make application and provide to the Humane Society proof that the animal was lawfully owned prior to the passage of the Bylaw. Upon being satisfied that the animal was lawfully owned prior to the passage of the By-law, the animal may be deemed “grandfathered” and may be kept by the owner for two years from the passing of this By-law. Information pertaining to the animal and its owner shall be entered into a registry of grandfathered animals.
