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.
Online payments have been suspended until April 9, 2021 to allow the City time to program the fee reduction into its payment systems. 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.
Business licences must be renewed annually. A renewal notice/bill will be sent to the address on your licence one month before your licence expires.

Check your business licence expiry date
Your licence will have an expiry date on it. You must renew before that date:
- Whether you receive a reminder from the City or not
- If your licence will expire and you will have to follow the new business licence application procedure
For any changes, inquiries or requests related to your business licence renewal, please make a Business Licence Account Update Request and a staff member will follow up with you.
