All businesses in St. Albert that sell tobacco products require a Tobacco Retail Licence, as well as a Business Licence. The Tobacco Retail Licensing Bylaw 20/96 defines “Tobacco Products” as the following:
- Tobacco in any form including, but not limited to, cigarettes, pipe tobacco, loose tobacco, plugs of tobacco, chewing tobacco and snuff
The licence fees for a Tobacco Licence are:
- $714.00 (renewals / new applications from January 1st - April 30th)
- $535.50 (new applications from May 1st - August 31st)
- $357.00 (new applications from September 1st - December 31st)
Tobacco Licences are valid from the date they are issued through December 31st of the current year; the licence must be renewed for the following year if the Business will continue to sell Tobacco Products through the following year.
