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

  • Required by the Winnipeg Building By-law, a copy of an occupancy permit authorizing the business to occupy the premises for which the Licence is sought



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.
