A business licence is a good investment. Having a licence shows your customers that you are a legitimate business that complies with local laws and regulations.
It is also the law. Anyone providing goods or services in Edmonton is required to have a licence under the Business Licence Bylaw.
Businesses in Edmonton are sorted into different categories based on the product offered, and different fees and regulations apply to each category.
