Home Based Businesses (Agricultural)

An "Agricultural Home Occupation” is an occupation or business conducted for gain or profit within a permitted building or structure as an accessory use, by any
resident of the farm dwelling unit in compliance with the regulations contained in this bylaw, such as: a carpenter, electrician, welder, machine shop, as well as small tool,
equipment repair or small engine repair shop.

Anyone looking to run a home occupation in an agricultural area should first view the zoning regulations and consult with City staff.

Once the zoning regulations have been read and the applicant is satisfied that it will be complied with, they are invited to print off the below application and submit it to the Planning and Building Department.  Applicants may also pick up an application and consult with Planning staff at the counter on the 3rd floor at Sarnia City Hall.
