If a business operates in more than one community, it may be eligible for an Inter-Community Business Licence. This program allows businesses to purchase their municipal licence and only one additional licence, instead of having to purchase a licence with each municipality in which they operate. This licence is available for an additional $150; this fee is prorated on a quarterly basis.
A business that operates a mobile operation may only purchase an Inter-Community Business Licence from the municipality in which they are resident. If the applicant does not maintain a premise in any of the participating municipalities, then they may apply at any one of the participating municipalities.
Certain types of businesses are not eligible for an Inter-Community Licence, such as escort agencies, body rub services and vehicles for hire (taxis, limousines and buses). These businesses require a licence from each municipality in which they operate.
