All vendors at your event must have:
- A West Vancouver Business Licence: all vendors need a West Vancouver Business Licence and should indicate on the licence application that they are applying for a Peddler’s Licence, valid in West Vancouver at one or more events during the calendar year. They can indicate “Peddler’s Licence” under Business Description.
- A Temporary Food Service Application for food vendors. This is a Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH) requirement and needs to be submitted by the event coordinator or food service provider to the VCH health office a minimum of 14 days before the event.
Non-profit organizations are exempt from the business licence fee, but still need to submit a completed VCH Temporary Food Service Application and West Vancouver Business Licence Application. Indicate the charitable number in the Business Description and indicate the purpose of the licence is for food vending at a special event.
* Please provide copies of the above food vendor documentation to the address above after receiving event approval.
