Sign Permits

If you are erecting a sign or other advertising device within the Town of Parry Sound you require a sign permit.

The sign by-law regulates sign permits. Submit a complete sign permit application to obtain a sign permit. If the sign you wish to use does not comply with our sign by-law you can submit an application for a council approved sign.

If you are making application for a sign on behalf of another company or individual, include a letter of authorization with your application.
