Municipal, Provincial and Federal Licenses
BizPal is another tool that can be used to determine what your business may need before setting up. The yes/no-style form is a quick and easy tool that lists permits and licenses required by the city and province.
Some businesses need provincial licenses that may include examinations, bonding, zoning approvals, fire safety inspections, on-highway permits, trade qualifications or trust provisions. Visit Alberta Municipal Affairs for more information.
The federal government has wide licensing powers within the fields of agriculture, manufacturing, communication, and inter-provincial and international transportation.
