Why do I need a licence?

Business licences are required for individuals or groups who operate or sell in Morinville, even if your business is not based here. This helps you connect with us for promotion throughout Morinville, opportunities for your business and news, and access to our online business directory.

How do I get a licence?

You can apply for a business licence by emailing your application to Business Licences, dropping it off in-person or by mailing  it to St. Germain Place (Civic Hall), 10125 100 Avenue, Morinville, Alberta T8R 1L6. A licence is issued once fees are collected and any other approvals are completed.

Where can I operate my business?

You may need a development permit and building permit to move your business to Morinville, depending upon the type of business and planned location.

Moving business locations within town may also require a permit, due to:

  • The zoning of the location;
  • If the business type has changed;
  • If you are expanding the building or lot; or
  • If it is a residential area.

Residential businesses, or home-based businesses, need to have a completed permit so we know how your business will fit in with its location.

Fees

We have a few different types of licences that work with how your business is operating in Morinville. All resident and non-resident licences expire on December 31 of each year.
