Permits and licences 

In order to do business in Canada, and to comply with government regulations, you may need a variety of licences and permits from different levels of government.

Use the permits and licences search above to find out which ones may apply to your business. Please note that some provinces and municipalities are not represented in the search, and not all industry sectors are included. Additionally, your business may need to comply with other regulations or obligations that do not involve permits and licences.
