Home Based Business Licence

A standard home based business is one that only operates within the principal residential dwelling. A home based business must hold a licence and comply with bylaw requirements. 
If any type of construction is required at the premises for which a business licence is being sought, the process may then also involve obtaining a Building Permit.

Please note that Home Based Daycares are required to have Interior Health approval, as well as a mandatory inspection by the Fire and Building Departments.

It is the responsibility of the applicant to arrange for the required inspections by calling the inspector directly to arrange a date and time. Call:

  • For fire inspection, 778-797-3200  
  • For building inspection, 778-797-8820
