Document Center


Welcome to the City of Canton Document Center

Below is a listing of City documents and permit applications.  It is easier to find a document by using "search." Examples:  If you are searching for a parade permit, type "permit" in the search box.  This will narrow the scope.  If you are searching for an license related document but are unsure of the title, type "license" in the search box and all license related documents will be listed.

A number of permits have a fee associated with them.  Current fees are listed on the fee schedule which is a searchable document. Many publications, such as official applications, documents, and forms, are offered in a portable document format with a .PDF file extension. To read or print these files you will need to install PDF reader software, several of which are freely available and listed below. If you currently have PDF reader software installed on your computer, you can use it to view or print PDF files after you have downloaded them. Your browser may already be configured to use the reader as a "helper application," so that you can automatically view a PDF File when you select it. If you do not have PDF reader software installed, your browser may give you the option of downloading and saving PDF Files for later viewing and printing. In this case, you do not need to configure your browser, but you will still need to have PDF reader software installed in order to access the downloaded PDF Files.
These files are intended to be either viewed on your screen or printed. In most cases, the layout of your printed version will be virtually identical to paper copies received from the City of Canton.
