Brampton plans stricter ‘adult entertainment’ rules

By A Staff Reporter

Brampton is strengthening licensing requirements for adult entertainment businesses and stores selling adult merchandise.

The initiative is part of an ongoing review of Licensing Bylaw 1-2002, as per an official release.

As part of the proposed amendments, the city says all licensed owners or operators of “body-rub parlors” and other adult entertainment outlets should be on the premises at all times.

It further proposes that all adult entertainers should be licensed.

As for adult video stores, adult merchandise (ie videos and other products) may henceforth fall under two categories: Class A, for stores in which the principal business is adult merchandise; and Class B, for those in which the portion of floor area devoted to the display of adult merchandise is less than 10 per cent of the merchandise display area.

The revised bylaw is to be presented to City Council April 12. Meanwhile adult entertainment businesses and the general public of Brampton are being urged to provide their inputs on these proposed amendments.

Comments or questions can be sent to or provided in person at the City Clerk’s Office (2 Wellington Street West), or by delegating to the council meeting on April 12.
