The City of Grande Prairie issues licences for businesses, business activities, and persons engaged in business. Business licensing bylaws are enacted to protect public health and safety, and a business licence serves as a confirmation that a business complies with local laws and regulations.

This applies to: 

Every separate business entity, trade, profession, industry, occupation, employment, calling or person providing goods or services, with the intent of making a profit, operating in the City of Grande Prairie is required to hold a valid City of Grande Prairie business licence.
