Like any advanced economy, you may require permits and licenses from different levels of government for the conduct of your business. Things such as registering your business, proper zoning, licenses to sell food, environmental assessments, etc., all require you to research and know what you're responsible for doing.
There are several resources you can use to find out what you will need:
- Check with your local Municipality or Town Hall to obtain information.
- Talk to a business counsellor or business related service provider.
- Use the BizPal tool (Online Business Permits and Licences Service)
- Contact the Canada Business Service Centre
Of course, the easiest way to find out what you need and where to find it, just contact us!
