Starting a Business
A Business License is required to operate within the Town of Drayton Valley. The Town offers three different types of licenses:
Standard Business License (for those who wish to open in a commercial building, mobile business, or out of town business)
Home Occupation License (for those who wish to operate out of their home)
Peddlers License (those who go door to door, or those who do not operate within the Farmer’s Market).
Should you wish to open a business within the Town, you will be required to submit the application prior to opening. Processing time is approximately 2-3 weeks, so please allow yourself this time frame before you open. Depending on the nature of your proposed business, it may be considered a discretionary use. Discretionary uses require Council approval so processing times may take longer than the normal 2-3 weeks.
Landowner consent is required. This portion of the application is to be completed by the person(s) whose name is shown on the Title. In order to be processed landowner consent must be provided. If the landlord is unavailable to sign the application, an email or the signed portion of the lease agreement will be acceptable.
Payment of fees is to be submitted (cheque or cash only) with the application. If fees are not submitted with the application, we will be unable to process the application.
The most recent municipal fees can be found on the fee schedule for the current year.
