Business Licence Fee Reductions
To help support local businesses through the pandemic recovery, the City is providing all businesses with a 50% reduction in business licence fees. The fee reduction will be automatically applied when businesses renew their existing licence or apply for a new business licence between now and March 31, 2022.
Business licence fees paid prior to April 1, 2021 will not be eligible for refunds. Businesses that already paid licence fees between January 1 and March 31, 2021 will receive the fee reduction when they renew their licence in 2022.
Most Commercial and Home Based Business licence applications or renewals can be made online.

Credit card payments will only be accepted for payments under $5,000, and EFT will only be accepted for payments over $5,000.
Restrictions for Businesses
On July 1, 2021, Alberta entered Stage 3 of its open for summer plan. This means all COVID-19 health restrictions are lifted for retail services and shopping malls. Restaurants, pubs, bars, lounges and cafes can also be open for both indoor and outdoor patio service, with no restrictions.
Curbside pickup, delivery and online services are still encouraged as people may have different reactions and perceptions around reopening and the relaxing or removal of public health restrictions.
The general indoor provincial mask mandate is also lifted, but masking may still be required in limited and specific settings such as public transit and some health facilities. For more information on the lifting of restrictions for businesses, please visit alberta.ca/covid19.
