Development Permits

If you are starting a new business, changing the focus of your business, or renovating, you will most likely need a Development Permit or a Home Occupation Permit from Town Office. And developments that involve structural, electrical, gas, or plumbing work may also require permits and safety inspections from our partner, Palliser Regional Municipal Services.
