Fire safety for bars, nightclubs and special events

The Public Safety Task Force works to ensure Calgary bars, nighclubs and special events comply with Fire Codes, Building Codes, City Bylaws, Gaming and Liquor laws, and other regulations to keep your customers and staff safe.

The Task Force suggests these resources to help owners and managers of bars and nightclubs and planners of special events to comply with policies and regulations.

Non-compliance with the Alberta Fire Code and other requirements can result in fines up to $15,000 or six months in jail. Additional fines of up to $1,000 per day can be levied and approval of business license can be revoked if necessary.
