Home Occupation Permits

Permit Eligibility

Home Occupations are permitted in residential zones within the City upon approval of a Home Occupation Permit (PDF). Generally, a home occupation is a small business conducted from a residence that does not impact any adjacent properties.

It can consist of up to 2 members of an immediate family, however, cannot generate noise or odors, vehicle or pedestrian traffic, or deliveries that are not consistent with a residential property. No exterior signage will be permitted to identify the location as a business and a garage must be maintained open so that cars can be parked inside.
