There are a lot of things to consider before starting or making changes to a business. Whether you are a home based business, commercial business or non-resident, The City of Calgary has resources to help your business approvals go smoothly.

Change of use

Starting on May 15, 2017, we’re streamlining our application process for a change of use to improve timelines and create more certainty for business owners before you move in.

  • In some cases, ownership changes can now be applied for over the phone and instantly approved.
  • We’re eliminating the need for a site plan or floor plan.
  • All information can be submitted in one form, instead of in multiple documents and plans.
  • An average business owner saves two to three weeks in preparation time.
