To support local businesses and encourage economic recovery, the Town has introduced a new, temporary relaxation of portable sign limits.

For the remainder of the 2020 calendar year, 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.

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