Apply for a License

Business Licence applications may be submitted at the Town of Canmore Civic Center Reception location as well as by email, fax and mail.  The Business Registry Coordinator will contact the applicant regarding the application, the business classification and the fees.

Business Licence applications will only be processed after compliance with the Land Use Bylaw is confirmed. Depending on the nature of the business, additional approval from Environmental Services, AMVIC, Calgary Health Authority or the RCMP may also be required. Contact the Busisness Registry Coordinator for further information.

You can download a fill-able Business Registry Application and Fee Schedule by clicking on the applicable form on the right hand side of this page.

How long will it take to receive the Business Licence?

Processing time for a Business Licence application depends on the type and complexity of the business.

Resident, Home Occupation or B&B Business Licences with no outstanding bylaw issues can be issued within three to four weeks from the date the application was received. Non-resident Business Licence applications are generally processed within three business days.
