BizPaL helps you find the permits and licenses you may require when starting or operating your business.  Whether you're looking to start a new business or renew existing permits and licenses, use this easy online process to find everything you need.

BizPaL is an innovative online service that provides entrepreneurs with simplified access to information about business permits, licenses and other requirements needed to start, operate and grow their business from the federal, provincial/territorial and participating municipal governments.

Benefits of BizPaL

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

  • It's free to use
  • It saves time
  • It's available 24/7
