Home Based Business Calgary
Home occupation permits Calgary
Sometimes you’re allowed to run a business out of your home in Calgary with a permit as long as it doesn’t interfere with other residents in the neighbourhood. The home occupation rules in the Calgary Municipal Code contain limits designed to minimize the impact your commercial activity has on your residential neighbourhood.
What is a home occupation bussiness in Calgary?
Home occupations are small-scale businesses that operate out of a home in a residential neighbourhood. Two types of home occupations are allowed in Calgary.
The first type is a Class 1 Home Occupation which has no effect on the surrounding neighbourhood. This type is allowed in all residential neighbourhoods.
The second type is a Class 2 Home Occupation which has minimal effect on the surrounding neighbours. This type is allowed only if no adverse impact on the neighbours can be guaranteed.
If you require documentation for business licensing or tax purposes, municipal planning approval/acceptance will be in the form of either a Home Occupation Class 1 Clearance form or a Development Permit for Home Occupation Class 2.
If you have questions please contact City of Calgary at 403-268-5311.
