Body Rub Parlour Licence

A Body Rub Parlour is any premises, or any part of any premises, where members of the general public attend or are invited to attend to receive a body rub from a body rub practitioner for a fee.

Application Process:

The application form is available on-line. You can also contact Community By-Law Enforcement Services to request an application by mail, or visit Community By-Law Enforcement Services and pick up the application in person.


Upon application, Community By-Law Enforcement Services will coordinate the following:

  • Verification from a City employee authorized to administer and enforce the Winnipeg Zoning By-law or the Downtown Winnipeg Zoning By-law that operation of the business on the premises for which the Licence is sought is permitted under one of those two zoning by-laws
  • A copy of an occupancy permit authorizing the business to occupy the premises for which the Licence is sought
  • Certificate from the Record Review Board Winnipeg Police Service



Fees are not permitted to be pro-rated or reduced, however, a recent Council approved amendment to the Doing Business in Winnipeg By-law now allows annual licences to be taken at any time of the year. Licences are valid for one year from date of purchase.
