City of Calgary - Fire Department Inspections

When you make you application with the city, an inspection with AHS is automaticity organized as part of the Business License process. You will schedule your inspection to coincide with your opening, after any renovations have been completed.

To schedule your inspection, you just have to dial the City of Calgary’s 24hr *311 service and they will set it up for you.

It is our belief that it is best to pay a fee of approx $100 for a pre purchase inspection. This will identify any deficiencies and allow you to have the Vendor repair or replace any issues prior to relieving conditions.
