Urban Planning and Permits for Businesses

Do you have a business project in Town of Mount Royal? Modify your signage, renovate your commercial space, or undertake any other development project. Contact our Urban Planning and Development clerks for assistance with your projects and setup procedures. We're here to support you throughout the process!

All new commercial occupancies, construction or renovation projects, change of use, or signage proposals require permits and/or certificates of authorization. 

The appropriate business type in the suitable location is a key milestone towards project success. Our Zoning By-law no. 1441 specifies permissible and restricted uses in different zones of our garden city. 

Before starting any project, it is crucial to adhere to the current municipal by-laws and obtain the necessary authorizations. Please refer to the Municipal By-laws page for further information. 

Keep in mind that for all permit and certificate applications made by a third party, a proxy form duly signed by the property owner is necessary (form below).
