Commercial Land

Commercial land in Kitimat is classified into ten zones which each start with the letter ‘C'. Most downtown sites are pre-zoned C1 City Centre which allows a wide range of commercial, retail and service land uses. A more limited range of commercial use is permitted on sites designated for Neighbourhood Shopping Areas or Local Stores. Specific personal service and retail use is also permitted in the M2-A Service Centre Commercial, which is an industrial zone.

Mixed residential-commercial use is permitted in City Centre. Residential units may be located above commercial floors. Private parking is required.

It would be unusual—but not unknown—to need rezoning for commercial use of a City Centre property. If zoning is in place, you need a Business License. If you wish to install an exterior sign—or complete renovations—you must also have a Development Permit and Building Permit.
