Learn more about Edmonton's Business Licence Bylaw and other regulations that business owners need to know.

Please refer to COVID-19 Support for Edmonton Businesses for information and resources available to you during this difficult time.

Every person or company that conducts business in Edmonton is required to have a business licence. This is regulated by the City of Edmonton's Business Licence Bylaw 13138. Some professions are exempt because these are regulated by other legislation. 

A business licence is a good investment because it shows your customers that you follow the City's rules and regulations. It also indicates that your business complies with fire, health, and building regulations. 

If your business operates at multiple locations, each location requires its own business licence.
