    Hi Daisi,

    This will depend on the nature of your business. Many businesses require one or more licences/permits from at least one level of government.

    There is a useful tool created by the various levels of government in Canada which helps you identify which permits and licences are required to operate a specific type of business in a specific location. To use BizPaL, first enter your location, then the type of business you wish to operate. Next, the tool will provide a list of suggested permits and licences. You can read the descriptions of the suggested permits and licences to determine which ones apply to your business.

    The BizPaL service can be accessed at the following website:

    I hope this helps!
