Signage

Prior to starting any stage of your project, including erecting signage, you must obtain a permit.

Some signage will require confirmation by a professional engineer for its structural capacity, such as projecting and freestanding signs.  Where a professional engineer is required, the drawings must be submitted with the original stamp and signature of the professional engineer.

Drawings can be submitted electronically in digital .pdf format. Also, where a professional engineer is required, these drawings may still be submitted electronically, and must be sealed with a certified digital signature.  Please email signpermits@victoria.ca to inquire about this process.

Forms & Applications

A Development Variance Permit is required for signage that does not comply with the Sign Bylaw.
