Inter-Community Business Licence Program

In partnership with the Provincial Ministry of Small Business and Revenue, we have entered into a Mobile Business Licence Program. With this program, a business will only have to obtain one additional business licence to do business in another participating community.

An Inter-Community Business Licence is available for an additional annual fee of $150.
