Sign Permits

Sign By-law Review

Sign by-law 2006-005 has been in effect for ten years with multiple amendments that have affected the regulation of various sign types including elections signs, mobile signs, fascia signs and advertising signs. A coordinated review is needed to ensure the town’s regulations address the needs of local businesses, while reflecting the town’s objectives and unique character. Visit the town's Sign By-law Review page for more details.

Fixed signs

If you want to install a fixed sign, please download and complete the fixed sign permit application (pdf). Please allow three weeks for processing the application. Complete requirements may be obtained by contacting the Clerk's department by phone 905-815-6015 or by email townclerk@oakville.ca. Access the current Sign-By-law, as amended.

Mobile signs

Mobile sign permits can only be obtained in person from the Clerk's department. Permits may only be submitted a maximum of 20 business days prior to requested placement and a minimum of two business days’ notice is required.
