All About Municipal Signage Bylaws

Like most major cities, Calgary and Edmonton have many bylaws that regulate the placement, size and shape of temporary signage. It is important to comply with these bylaws as non-compliance can result in hefty fines. This is especially important regarding the placement of signs on municipal property, as there are many specific placement rules, such as distance from the curb, distance from an intersection, proximity to a fire hydrant, and many other rules and restrictions.

A recent article in the Calgary Herald highlighted the fact that there is a proliferation of illegally placed signs in Calgary and as a result the City will be stepping up its enforcement activities and increasing the fines for signage bylaw violations.

As a business owner, understanding these regulations is essential to avoid potential penalties and to maximize your advertising effectiveness.

In Calgary and Edmonton, each type of temporary sign carries its own specific set of rules, and many types of signage require a permit from the City.
