Welcome to the Online Business Permits and Licences Service. BizPaL helps you generate a personalized list of the business documents you need for the levels of government (local, provincial/territorial, and federal) you may have to deal with in order to grow or start up your business. And if you are already operating, BizPaL can help you verify that you have all the correct permits and licenses.
You can access BizPaL by clicking on the link. There you'll find a Q&A wizard that walks you through the business permit and license process. Simply answer the questions and BizPaL will provide the business permit and license information specific to your business. Designed for maximum convenience, BizPaL can significantly reduce the amount of time you would otherwise have spent on research.
- Save time and money - Because most of the information you need is available from a single source, you spend less time searching and more time building your business.
- Improve business planning - With BizPaL, you know which permits and licenses are needed for your business, enabling you to comply with them and get it right the first time.
- Get answers when you need them - As an online service, BizPaL is available day or night to help you navigate government requirements. What's more, all answers are tailored to your business situation.
This service is the result of strong collaboration between the Government of Canada and participating provincial/territorial, and local governments.
