April 6, 2021

To help support local businesses through the pandemic recovery, the City is providing all businesses with a 50% reduction in business licence fees. The fee reduction will be automatically applied when businesses renew their existing licence or apply for a new business licence between now and March 31, 2022.

Business licence fees paid prior to April 1, 2021 will not be eligible for refunds. Businesses that already paid licence fees between January 1 and March 31, 2021 will receive the fee reduction when they renew their licence in 2022.

Your business licence is valid for one year and has an expiry date on it. As a courtesy, you will be sent a renewal notice to the mailing address on the business licence 45 days before the licence expires.  

You must renew your licence before the expiry date, whether or not you receive a notice. If the licence is not renewed on time, you may have to apply for a new business licence.


The fees can be found in Schedule B of the Business Licence Bylaw
