The Town of Okotoks requires all businesses that are operating, working, providing or selling a product or service within or partially within the town corporate boundaries to possess a valid Okotoks business license, as established in the Okotoks Business License Bylaw 21-23. This also includes co-working spaces (any location leasing office/desk/room/salon chairs/spaces to other businesses). A person or business that does not have a permanent location within Okotoks but is conducting business in the Town must complete an application.
