Street Banner Permits


The City of St. Catharines has five locations where roadside poles allow for the display of street banners.  The locations include:

  • Ontario Street at Adams Street
  • Geneva Street at Balfour Street
  • Merritt Street at Walnut Lane
  • Main Street at Brock Street
  • Lake Street at Louisa Street

The installation of street banners is limited to charitable organizations or in the promotion of community activities. Street banners are not permitted as a form of advertising for religious or commercial gain.

Approved applicants must pay a street banner permit fee and provide a minimum of $5 million liability insurance with The Corporation of The City of St. Catharines named as additional insured. In some cases, The Region of Niagara must also be named on the insurance certificate.

All costs associated with the manufacturing of street banners are the responsibility of the applicant. Street banners must be made according to the City of St. Catharines’ specifications.


Applicants must fill out the Street Banner Application and email or fax the completed form to the attention of the Road Services Technician.
