Navigating the strict sign permit process within the national parks can be daunting, but it doesn’t have to be. You’re welcome to submit your own application or let the Banff Sign Co. fill out all the required paperwork and specification drawings to meet any bylaw & policy requirements.
TOWN OF BANFF
As a major resort located in a National Park and a World Heritage Site, Banff tries to offer visitors and residents a high quality physical environment that respects the magnificent natural setting. While it is important to identify visitor services, it is necessary to limit the number, size and type of signs allowed, so that they do not dominated the appearance of the town.

REST OF NATIONAL PARK & JASPER
Because Banff is such a major resort and heritage site, they do have their own Signage Regulations and Restrictions. However, the National Park also has some guidelines that have to be followed for anyone seeking signage outside of Banff & Canmore. These sign regulations would apply to Jasper and other areas throughout the National Park.
Here is the link to the National Park Sign Regulations (excluding the Town of Banff).
TOWN OF CANMORE
Signs are a highly visible component of building design and the overall appearance of a site. They are important for the identification on of all buildings and developments in Canmore and also serve an advertising role for every business in Town.
The design, size and location of signs can create a powerful image of Canmore for both residents and visitors. The Town regulates signage to establish a level playing field for all businesses by establishing standards that attempt to balance the visibility of signage with an attractive appearance of the community.
The overall intent of these regulations is to assist in making a positive contribution to Canmore’s physical appearance in keeping with its spectacular mountain setting.
