BizPaL Online Business Permits and Licences

BizPaL helps you find the permits and licences you may require when starting or operating your business.

BizPaL is an innovative online service that allows business clients to easily generate a customized list of the permits and licences they require from three levels of government – local, provincial and federal – by providing some generic information about the 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.

This service is the result of strong collaboration between the Government of Canada and participating provincial/territorial, regional, and municipal governments.
