BizPaL Online Business Permits and Licences

The City of Langford utilizes BizPaL as one of the ways businesses can access information and streamline the process of starting a business. BizPaL is an innovative online service that allows business clients to easily generate a customized list of the permits and licences they require from three levels of government – local, provincial and federal – simply by providing some generic information about the business.

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. This service is the result of strong collaboration between the Government of Canada and participating provincial/territorial, regional, and municipal governments and is designed with the following benefits in mind:
