You assume enough risks when starting a new business venture – why add an unnecessary one?

Before you start:

  • Construction
  • Changing the Use of a Property.
  • Considering the purchase of a property.
  • A new business or renovation project.

Start Here, with the City of Moose Jaw’s Planning & Development team.

From site plans and architecture drawings to window specs and door swings, there’s a lot to consider. But when you know the applicable Zoning Bylaws and National Building Code standards ahead of time you can plan accordingly and avoid costly delays or on-the-fly renovations (which can also be costly).

Below you’ll find answers to some of the most frequently asked questions received by our Planning & Development department and clarification on frequently misunderstood terms.

Plus, on the left-hand side of the page we have a host of links to our Bylaws, Policies and forms.

We want your business to succeed and we’re here to help.

So, before you start – start here: or call 306-694-4443.
