Whether it's a business, tourist attraction or special event, highway signage is allowed to help direct drivers to where you want them to go.
All signs must follow provincial safety and aesthetics standards.
There are many different kinds of signs that may apply:
On-premise signs are located on the same piece of land on which the business or activity is located. An enterprise or organization located outside the incorporated limits of any organized hamlet, village, town or city adjacent to a provincial highway may be eligible for an on-premise sign.
One Time Event Signs
To assist travellers in locating events, a One Time Event Signing (OTES) can be installed by a non-profit organization or an agency hosting a major event of provincial, national or international importance.
The government may provide Community Advance signs for eligible communities that are located on the route of a provincial highway or connected to a provincial highway by a community access road.
Standard Rural Motorist Service signs are directional signs for rural enterprises or organizations that provide front line motorist services or operate recreational/cultural facilities. The facility must be located outside the incorporated limits of an urban community and beyond the boundaries of a national, provincial or regional park.
Federal, Provincial or Regional Park Signs
At the request of the applicable park agency, the government may install directional signing in advance and/or at the access of Federal, Provincial, and Regional Parks. The attraction will be a specific site, feature, facility, or traffic generator that is open to the general public for recreation or cultural activities.
The government can install, on a cost recovery basis, Road Name guide signs in order to provide rural residents with an "address" to assist in being located by the public.
First Nation Signs
To inform motorists that they are entering a First Nation Community, we can install a First Nations Community Boundary sign at the property boundaries.
