Renewal guidelines

A resident business that does not renew by Jan. 15 will be issued an expiration notice. After that happens, they will be required to submit an application and pay a fee to obtain a new business licence. 

Resident business licence holders renew online at no charge unless:

  • There is a change to the nature of the business
  • There is a change in ownership
  • There is a change to the business location

Those who have an intermunicipal business licence through the Intermunicipal Business Licence Arrangement can also renew annually at no charge, provided a copy of their active municipal licence is uploaded.

Non-resident business licence holders must apply for a business licence each year if they wish to continue conducting business in the City of Spruce Grove (annual fee applies).

Businesses operating without a valid business licence will be issued penalties (per Section 14 of the Business Licence Bylaw).
