Canadian Business Licenses have become easier than ever to get. Remember the old days of having to drive around from location to location? Well alot of these services are now offered online. For instance, you can now get your Vancouver Business Permits and your Burnaby Permits by going to those Municipalities websites. It saves you time and money because you don’t have to drive, park and then wait in line.
Getting the right permits for your business is key to your success. Many newcomers do not know about the regulations that exist for new businesses. For instance, when I ran a coffee shop, I remember that we had somewhere between 10 and 15 permits before we could even open our doors. Newcomers may not know what permits they need and where to find this information. Remember that as a business owner, when it comes to operating a business in Canada, the authorities that regulate licences and permits are very strict. And if you are caught not following the rules, you may be banned from doing business in Canada or worse, sent back to your home country.
