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.
The sign may identify the business or promote the goods/services that are offered for sale/trade on the premises where the sign is located.
Rural private signs are subject to provincial legislation and all bylaws established by the municipality, in which the sign is located.

Off-premise identification signs are directional signs that are separate and apart from the land on which the enterprise or organization is located. These enterprises or organizations must be located outside a city, town, village or organized hamlet and the signs are intended for the purpose of identifying the location of the facility.
An identification sign may be installed by:
- A non-profit, religious or community organization who have facilities outside a city, town, village or organized hamlet for the purpose of identifying the location of the facilities; or
- A rural enterprise or organization that is either adjacent to, or accessible by, an all-weather road from the highway being served by the sign.
