Online Business Licence Applications Now Available

(Red Deer, Alberta)

In September, City Council approved a new Business Licence Bylaw (3609/2018) requiring all businesses operating in The City of Red Deer to obtain a business licence. To make applying for and renewing business licences easier, a new online application platform launched this week allowing owners to apply anytime and from anywhere.  

The new system is called MyLicence and it is available for both resident and non-resident business owners. It allows for either annual renewable or short-term licences, depending on the business’ needs.  

“We know that business owners are busy and it isn’t always easy to make a trip to City Hall during office hours,” said Erin Stuart, Inspections & Licensing Manager. “The new system gives them the flexibility to apply at a time that is convenient for them.”

Business owners are able to apply online for their 2018 licence free of charge through MyLicence or in person. Those currently operating under a business licence - do not have to reapply, but will see a new licence category and fee for their 2019 licence. Businesses previously operating under an Occupancy Permit are required to obtain an annual, renewable business licence.
