BizPal Logo - Business Starts Here

BizPaL is a one-stop, free online service that helps entrepreneurs and local business owners to find business permit and license information to start and grow a business. The main goal of BizPaL is to make it faster and easier for businesses to get started by simplifying the document research process.

BizPaL asks you to answer a series of questions about the scope of your current or proposed business. Based on your answers, you will generate a customized list of permits and licenses you may need from the municipal, provincial and federal levels of government - all in one place.

BizPaL is the result of a collaborative effort of the Town of Whitby, Service Ontario and Industry Canada.

Every effort is made to ensure the accuracy and reliability of the content regarding permits and licenses; however, making sure that all required permits and licenses are obtained remains the responsibility of the user.
