Sign Permit applications are required in accordance with Delta's Sign Bylaw. There are certain types of signs which do not require a permit, see list on the Sign Permit web page.

Any other type of signage requires a Sign Permit application in advance of installation.

If you are unsure if your proposed sign requires a permit, please contact the Application Centre at 604-946-3380 or prior to submitting an application.
