Dog Licensing

Sturgeon County dog owners in all multi-lot subdivisions, hamlets and Canadian Forces Base Edmonton must purchase a dog licence.

Dog licences are $20 for neutered males and spayed females OR $30 for unaltered dogs. Your licence is valid for one year from the application date.

If you are a new user, you’ll be asked to input your name, address, phone number, and payment information.

You can also pay in person at Sturgeon County Centre (9613 100 St. in Morinville).

Reminder: you could incur an “unlicensed dog” fine of $250 if you don’t have a dog licence or fail to renew the licence when expired.

Why does your dog need a licence?

  • Less worry! If your fur baby goes missing, you have a higher chance of being reunited as people are more likely to approach a dog with a tag.
  • If the dog is licensed and is wearing his/her tag, he/she is identifiable.
  • It allows animal control to get in touch with you quickly

Fire Permits

Fire permits for burn barrels and incinerators are valid for one year from the date of application.

Fire permits for burning garden/yard debris are valid for 30 days at a time, year round. They are valid for piles of garden/yard debris smaller than 12 feet long by 12 feet wide by six feet high.

Fire permits for large brush piles, windrow piles and structure fires are only issued between December 1 and March 31 and need a site inspection from Emergency Services staff prior to being issued. Permits are valid for 30 days or until March 31 and can be issued on-site. They are valid for piles larger than 12 feet long by 12 feet wide by six feet high. These permits are not issued in multi-lot subdivisions.

You do not need a fire permit for an attended fire that is lit in an approved fire pit for recreation, cooking or warming purposes.

Failure to obtain a fire permit and/or the violation of any terms and conditions set out in the fire permit may result in a fine.
