How long will it take?
Ask about our 30-day conditional business licence. As long as your business is within an appropriate zone, inspections and paperwork can be submitted within 30 days. This helps you launch on your timeline.
If you're planning on substantial renovations or have a business that doesn't quite fit within the established zoning, this may take a bit more time. Talk to our business licence representatives today about your options: 250-490-2488 or email.
