Licence categories and regulations for agriculture and breeding businesses.

The City of Edmonton’s Business Licence Bylaw outlines the categories and regulations for businesses involved in agriculture and breeding.

Categories

Farmer's Market

This category is described as "a market as approved by the Alberta Approved Farmers’ Market Program administered by Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development."

Vendors operating within a licensed farmer's market do not need a licence of their own.

There are no special business licence regulations - other than the need for a licence - however there are special application requirements for this category. Edmonton Fire Rescue is asked for a recommendation on applications for this category of business.

Application Requirements

Applications must include proof that you are a member of the Alberta Approved Farmer’s Market Program administered by Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development.

Livestock Operation

This category is described as "breeding (including any associated sale), boarding (whether for sale, shipment, inspection, appraisal, slaughter, or any other purpose), training or sale of any animal other than an animal normally considered as a domestic household pet."

There are no special business licence regulations for this category, other than the need for a licence. Edmonton Fire Rescue is asked for a recommendation on applications for this category of business.

Small Animal Breeding and Boarding Establishment
