  • Know the permits and licences needed to start or expand a business in NWT

Since 2005, BizPaL has streamlined the process for entrepreneurs wanting to know which permits and licences may be needed to start or grow a business in a specific community. As a one-stop resource, BizPaL cuts back on research time. BizPaL is free and can be accessed 24/7.

Business owners answer a few questions about the nature and scope of the proposed or current business, and BizPaL immediately generates a list of the licences and permits required by all three levels of government. Along with basic information, BizPaL includes links to government sites where entrepreneurs can learn more and, in some cases, apply for the licences or permits online.

Visit BizPaL for more details to start or expand your business.

Should your local municipality not currently participate in BizPaL, why not contact your municipal office and encourage them to become a partner?
