What is the process to obtain a Solicitor’s Permit?
Businesses are required to complete a Business Solicitor’s Permit Application. This is designed for the owner, manager, supervisor, or representative of said business.
In addition to the completed business permit application, a photocopy of one’s government-issued ID as well as a sample or copy of the handbill, flyer or business card you intend on soliciting with will be required.
Additionally, each individual who solicits on your business' behalf must complete an Individual Solicitor’s Permit Application and attach a photo copy of their government-issued ID. More information is available on the New Solicitor's Permit webpage.
