BizPaL Business Permits and Licences

Looking to start or grow your business? BizPaL is an innovative online service that allows you, the entrepreneur or business owner, a central place to find the permit and licence information needed to start or grow your business.

Finding out which government requirements apply to a certain business type can be time consuming and frustrating. BizPaL was created to help identify what you may require, quickly and easily. The information you need is available from a single source; entrepreneurs spend less time dealing with red tape - saving effort and money in the process - and more time building their business.

Based on some generic information that you provide about the business, you will generate a complete list of needed permits and licences from the municipal, provincial, and federal levels of government in one place.

The service is the result of strong collaboration between the federal, provincial/territorial and participating local governments, and was designed with the following benefits in mind:

  • Easy and convenient
  • One stop access to permit and licence information
  • Accessible anytime
