An escort agency is:

  • A person who offers to arrange or arranges an introduction between an escort and another person or arranges an escort to provide a date or a period of companionship for another person.
  • A person who is the registered user of a telephone number or cellular phone number that is advertised as the number to telephone to arrange an introduction with an escort.
  • A person who pays for, places or arranges an advertisement in any media offering to arrange an introduction with an escort.
  • A person who operates an Internet Web site to promote an escort service or to offer to arrange an introduction with an escort.

Application Process:

There are several ways to access the escort agency licence application form:


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 Services



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.
