  • fill out an additional information form, if the proposed business is a Home Occupation.

  • have a letter of approval from the owner of the dwelling if the applicant is a tenant wishing to obtain a Business License for a Home Occupation

  • obtain a Development Permit if:

    • you are operating a business in you home.

    • the use of your business space is being changed (i.e. retail to office space).

    • The fee for a Development Permit is: 
      - Home Occupation: $25.00
      - Commercial/Industrial Alterations: $50.00

Application Process

Applications are reviewed in the order in which they are received.

If you are applying for a Home Occupation please be advised that your application may be advertised in the local newspaper over a two (2) week period.

If the application is approved, the license will be held for pick-up or will be mailed, at the preference of the applicant, providing the Business License fee has been paid.
