BizPaL is a free and innovative online service that provides entrepreneurs with simplified access to the information on permits and licences that they need to establish and run their businesses. This unique partnership is the result of strong collaboration between the federal, provincial/territorial and participating local governments and is designed to cut through the paperwork burden and red tape that small business owners encounter.
Based on some generic information that you provide about the nature and scope of your current or proposed business activities, BizPaL will provide a customized list of potential permits and licences that you may require to operate or open your business. 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 combined efforts by 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
