A new partnership between City of Canning, City of Gosnells and Town of Victoria Park makes it easier to trade at approved events in their areas.

The Simplified Trading Partnership Permit (STPP) is for registered food businesses wanting to trade at approved events in any of the participating local government areas. 

The permit is free between 1 October 2020 – 30 June 2021, in recognition of the impact of COVID-19 on the business community.

You can make an initial application online at any participating local government, ideally the local government that is hosting the first event you intend to trade at. You will need to apply for the permit at least two weeks (14 days) prior to trading at your first event.

After receiving your initial permit simply notify the subsequent local governments (Victoria Park, Gosnells and Canning) online if you plan to trade at an approved event within their boundaries. After notifying them, you will receive your subsequent permit(s) free of charge for the specified period.

You will need to notify each local government before each event you want to attend. The notification process is fast, simple and can be done online. Please note all permits are only for trading at approved events, upon invitation of the event organiser.

Forms can be completed online using the links below: 

  • If your first event this financial year is located in City of Canning, apply here
  • If your first event this financial year is located in City of Gosnells, apply here

If you already have an annual food permit for trading at events within the City of Canning please read the below information.

If you are a food stall or food vehicle and you already have an annual permit from the City of Canning that doesn’t expire for a while, don't worry you can still use this and be a part of the new simplified trading partnership!

Your current permit held with the City of Canning will be valid at City of Canning events, however, if you wish to upgrade you can and your food business information and supporting documents can be shared between the three local governments participating in the initiative.

If you already hold a valid annual permit with the City but would like to take part in the Simplified Trading Partnership you can notify here (use today's date as your first date of trade).

Once you have notified and the City has upgraded your annual permit to include the simplified trading partnership sharing agreement, you will then only need to simply notify for future events to each local government of your intention to trade via the short notification process on each of their websites.   
The fee has currently been waived for the simplified trading permit for the 20/21 financial year due to the impacts of COVID-19, so no additional payments are required for this service! Simplified trading permits will be issued for the 20/21 financial year, expiring 30 June 2021.

The simplified Trading Permit will not impact the expiration date or validity of your current mobile trading permit with the City of Canning, but is just an additional service/option available. Alternatively you can apply to each Local Government (LG) in full as per each LG’s usual application process.
