To support local businesses as they navigate through the pandemic, the Town is extending relaxed rules on portable sign limits.

The policy for portable signs has been revised as follows:

  • There is no longer a maximum number of portable signs that a business can apply for, per calendar year. Previously, the maximum was four portable sign permits per calendar year.
  • To allow more businesses in multi-tenant commercial plazas to have active portable signs at the same time, By-Law Services may permit portable signs that are closer than 100 metres apart. These requests will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis to ensure that safety and sightlines do not pose a negative impact.

Individual businesses are still limited to one mobile sign permit at a time (e.g. no concurrent permits).

To apply for a Portable Sign Permit, complete the Online Portable Sign Permit Form.

All approvals are at the discretion of Town of Staff and the relaxed rules may be terminated at any time.

Businesses requiring any clarification, may contact contact By-Law Services at or by phone at 905-619-2529 ext. 3334.
