I need some help finding out how to get an ad or some sort of ad on a website for Calgary. Or, how to find work without having a business licence

Does anyone know about any of this, I am new to the city and Vancouver, well that city really does not have the same rules as here and it has been impossible for me to find work.

Thanks

Good Luck! Calgary is a city where rules matter and licences are the only thing that will entitle you to escort there. Of course being an independant is allways an option but I imagine there are licencing procedures similar to that of an agency even on that level. It is very "by the book" in Alberta anywhere for working girls and it is unlikely that you will be able to do very many calls without being fully licenced. It is very different from Vancouver in every way and very hard to get away with anything questionable. The standards are higher, the girls are not.

I am sure you could build up a good client base as an independent. All it takes is good service and word of mouth. I know of a coulple of guys who would be interested in helping you get started. PM me with details and a contact number.

Do not listen to a word of it sexysam, building a clientele is the least of your challenges when it comes to work in Calgary. Like I said before there are rules there and there is a reason for the solidity of the agencies and the low turnover rates there and that would make independancy very difficult for someone new to the city. I think if you check out an agency like Kates Playmates who allready have a large client base and will train you to the way that they operate. I think you will find the money you can make is somewhat similar to that of an indie here but you are part of a team of ladies. And there are no drivers, most girls drive themselves and they don't rip off the agency because they make enough money not to. It is a whole new ballgame in Calgary and you will find it to be much more pleasant if you can follow the rules.

Hey SexySam and welcome to Calgary,

girlguru is right in that Calgary's industry is way too regulated. If you are just starting off it may be best to get hooked-up with an agency. Kates Playmates and Good Vibrations are the two best here in town. As long as you are of legal age and have no police record and have a full understanding of what you are getting into... you should have no problem getting a licence to operate. I believe that the current rate in Calgary is $100 (for a licence). Some agencies will provide you a driver if you wish but you can also drive yourself. If you check out http://www.katesescorts.com/Kates2/kates2.html you will see the current rates in Calgary and a breakdown of agency fees.

After you get to know the market better and you really want to go indy then by all means. At least you will know the rules here and avoid trouble with LE as they are nasty here. Just so you know, most indys here have at one time or another worked for an agency first.

Best of Luck

Hi
I am new to the board. I have not worked for an agency and do quite well. A bit nervous at times but that will just be the way it is in this line of work no matter if you are with an agency or an independant.
Stay Safe!

How do I get a licence and can I get one without a job or how can I get a job without the licence? Kinda a catch-22 don't yah think but I have to say thank you to you guys for all your information. I am kinda scared of being an indie and definitely would rather work with an agency.

Hi Again
Well I am hoping that they allow indies to get licensed. I am going next week now that I have put up a web page. I just put it up yesterday...suddenly feel like a sitting duck ...
I will let you know what happens.

Unless the City of Calgary has radically changed their policy on licensing policies for Escorts there isn’t a chance you will get your license as an independent. I personally know about a couple of example where ladies tried this route and were turned down. I can’t find the wording on the CofC website but it amounts to if you want to work as an escort in this city you NEED to work for a licensed agency.

So, hifisex, what you are saying is that I have to get hired by an agency in order to get my own licence?

I think what he's saying is that an "independent" must not only get an escort licence, but also be her own "agency" as well.

So, you could be your own "agency" with yourself as an employee I suppose.

If you look on my site I took all my risque photos myself...on a timer. Quite a joke if you saw me running around for a pose lol
I will post a couple of my friend today I did those last week.
Anyway you can let me know.
CaptainCanuck,
So basically you are saying I have to apply for a business first? Or just pay the escort agency license fee and an escort license fee?

still confused

Within a licenced agency are all of the employees under that particular licence or they all individually licenced? And is it possible to obtain a licence after an agency has hired you? Cause really, I am not about to go on my own, I think its just too risky.

The agencies have an agency license. The girls still then have to get their own individual license once they are hired by said agency. Your cost is $200 first year..I think and then $100 to renew yearly. It does involve a visit with vice. If you have certain criminal records it will not be granted. I know a girl who applied and paid her money. She had some sort of record and she was refused a license and they kept th $200. That's fine if they don't license but give the girl her money!!!! After all you walk in thinking you are paying for a service that you don't get and they keep it...City Of Calgary money grab.
