Stamp of Compliance


A Stamp of Compliance is confirmation that the Real Property Report you submit is compliant with the land use regulations of your district, and that all construction on site was completed under a valid permit. A Stamp of Compliance is frequently requested by lending institutions or purchasers prior to the transfer of property.

If you are not compliant, we will not issue the stamp and we can require you to make your property compliant - either through application for the appropriate Development/Building Permits, or demolition of non-compliant parts.


Applying for a Stamp of Compliance

To request a Stamp of Compliance please complete the request form available below, and submit it along with at least two copies of your Real Property Report (at least one of which must be an original), and the relevant fee. The Town will keep one original copy of you Real Property Report, but will stamp and return all other copies you provide.

Note that the Real Property Report you provide must be no more than 2 years old, or can be 2 to 5 years old if accompanied by a statutory declaration affirming that nothing has changed.



Your Stamp of Compliance can be submitted at:

Planning and Development
Town of Canmore
