We're modernizing business licensing

Effective May 6, 2024: We are streamlining over 500 different licensing types to under 100. 

No action is required for businesses with existing licensing.

Your business licence will be:

  • Automatically transferred into the new licence type
  • Reflected on the 2025 licence
