VICTORIA – Starting and running a business in British Columbia is easier thanks to BizPaL, an online business permit and licence service that saves time spent on paperwork and helps entrepreneurs start up faster.

Today, the Honourable Maxime Bernier, Minister of State (Small Business and Tourism), together with Pat Bell, Minister of Jobs, Tourism and Innovation, welcomed the launch of BizPaL to 40 additional municipalities in British Columbia.

BizPaL is an innovative service that provides entrepreneurs with simplified access to information on the permits and licences they need to establish and run their businesses. This unique partnership among federal, provincial, territorial and municipal governments is designed to cut through the paperwork burden and red tape that small business owners encounter.

The BizPaL service in these 40 municipalities was developed through a partnership with local governments, the Province of British Columbia and the Government of Canada. Overall, 98 municipalities in British Columbia now offer the service.
