The Right Way to Obtain Your Business Licence in Ontario

business licence canada

Once you take the step to start a new business, you have so many decisions to make, and it can seem so overwhelming! One of the first things you will want to do is apply for and obtain a business licence, also known as a Master Business Licence. Many Canadians are unaware about how to go about doing this, which is why Ontario Business Central is here to assist through the process.

Our user friendly site guides you through the process and our staff is available to answer any questions that may come up along the way. When you enlist the help of Ontario Business Central to register your Master Business Licence, you can have your registration completed and sent directly to your inbox on the same day your order is placed.

There are 3 different types of registration within the Province of Ontario:

  1. Sole proprietorship (this is a registration operated by one individual solely)
  2. General partnership (this is a registration operated by 2 or more individuals)
  3. Tradenames (this is a registration operating under an existing Ontario corporation)

Master Business Licences are valid for five years after their creation date, after which they will need to be renewed in order to stay active. Not only will we keep your licence in our files, so we are able to resend it to you should you ever lose your original copy, but we’ll also send you a reminder before your licence expires and remind you to renew it.

Ontario Business Central has been there to help our clients for over 25 years and provides an easy platform for you to register your business within a matter of minutes.

Getting your business license can seem a little confusing, but Ontario Business Central is here to help you. Call us at 1-800-280-1913 or 416-599-9009 in Toronto.
