Home-Based Business

Home Occupation is any occupation, trade, profession, service or craft carried on by the occupant of a residence as a use that is secondary to the residential use of the lot.

The Town of Claresholm supports and encourages home occupations (home-based businesses) in residential areas, provided they meet the standards in the Land Use Bylaw. To obtain a home occupation business license complete the application below and return to the Town Office. If the license is not renewed annually, the permit will expire and the occupant would need to reapply for Home Occupation.
