In the Village of Dunnottar, structures over 100 sq. ft. require a permit. In the R.M. of East St. Paul, structures over 107 sq. ft. require a permit. Such buildings would include, but not limited to fabric storage buildings, screened fabric gazebos, portable fabric shelters, etc...

Depending on the type of tent or canopy, a Conditional Use or Zoning Variance may be required by the respective municipal council.
