BizPaL – Business Permits and Licences

BizPaL is an innovative online service that provides entrepreneurs with simplified access to information about business permits, licences and other requirements needed to start, operate and grow their business from the federal, provincial/territorial and participating municipal governments.

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.

BizPaL is the result of a collaborative effort of the City of Guelph, Service Ontario and Industry Canada, and was designed with the following benefits in mind:

  • It’s free to use
  • It saves time
  • It’s available 24/7
