Prior to submitting your business license, we encourage you to take some time to research your business.
- Determine if your location is zoned appropriately. You can do this by contacting our one-on-one support program to go through your potential locations. We can help you identify whether your dream location is zoned appropriately. While you are doing this, we suggest you arrange for a conditional lease, if you choose to sign one at this stage.
- Research the regulatory requirements for other agencies, such as Alberta Health Services, and Alberta Gaming Liquor and Cannabis. Depending on your business, there may be other important regulations to consider.
- Do you need help with business planning or financing? There are some great local organizations that can help you such as Business Link and Alberta Women Entrepreneurs.
