Get Help Starting or Growing Your EG Business
When you’re just getting started in business or you’re ready to expand, it can be hard to know where to start. BizPaL is an online service that grants you, the entrepreneur or business owner, access to all of the permit and license information you may need

After clicking the “Launch BizPaL” link, you will be taken to a web page and asked to answer: 

Step 1: Where is your business?
Step 2: What is your business?

You will then gain access to Step 3 – finding permits and licenses for these topics. A checklist will drop down, allowing you to check the specific items that apply to your business.

After submitting these selections, a refined list of permits and licenses will generate - from the municipal, provincial, and federal levels of government.

This access centre makes permit and licensing easy, convenient, and accessible at any time.
