City of Weyburn Business License Bylaw No. 2019-3405 states that, “No person shall carry on any business in the City without a license.”
A business license is required by any business which intends to operate a commercial, merchandising, or industrial activity within the City of Weyburn corporate boundaries.
An application must be completed to include name, occupation, address of applicant, nature of business and location of business. There are two separate types of application forms depending on if you are considered a “Non-Resident Business License” or a “Resident Business License”.
“Resident Business” means a business as defined in The Cities Act, operating within the City of Weyburn boundaries but does not include any business considered a “Non-Resident Business” with fees as stated in Schedule “B”
“Non-Resident Business” means a person or persons carrying on any activity or business defined in this Bylaw who are not a resident business with an assessed commercial premise in respect to the activity or business so carried on with fees as stated in Schedule “C”.
The license application requires pertinent information the City of Weyburn requires in order to process a business license. Once an application is completed, submitted and approved, the applicant must pay the license fee required and then a business license will be issued to the applicant.
In the case of a Resident business license, the license must be displayed in a prominent place at the place of business. In the case of a Non-Resident Business license, the applicant should keep the license with them any time they are doing business in the city.
