We are at an unprecedented moment in our city, state, and country. We want to express our gratitude for your continued support and patience as we continue to evaluate and adjust our operations because of the COVID-19 outbreak.

The Administration Department provides a number of direct and support services for the City organization and City Council. Responsibilities of this department include processing business licenses, small animal permits, complaint tracking, liquor licenses, records management, and public record requests.

This department also prepares the City Council and Urban Renewal Agency meeting notices, agendas, and meeting packets.

City of Canby staff cannot respond to requests for legal advice from anyone. To understand and protect your legal rights,
you should consult your own private lawyer or contact the Oregon State Bar Lawyer Referral Service
at 1-800-452-7636
(within Oregon) or 503-684-3763.

Notary Services are available at City Hall on Fridays. Please call ahead to ensure that someone will be available when you arrive. We cannot notarize wills, documents in a foreign language, or photographs. It is illegal to make copies, or to certify to copies of Oregon birth or death certificates and marriage or divorce decrees, according to Oregon Revised Statutes Chapter 432.380 (15)
and Oregon Administrative Rule 333-011-0335(7). Certified copies are available from the agencies in charge of those records.
