Program Extension

The Intermunicipal Business Licence pilot program is extended until December 31, 2015

With the extension it will continue to be easier for Fraser Valley based mobile trade contractors or other professionals (related to the construction industry) to operate in the Fraser Valley. The program allows eligible mobile businesses to purchase just one licence, rather than obtaining non-resident business licences in each municipality in which they operate.

Eligibility

Eligibility is limited to trades contractors or other professionals (related to the construction industry) that are based in and provide a service or product across the participating municipalities.


Where to Apply

New applications and renewals should be submitted to the municipal business licencing office of the home municipality (where the business is presently located and licenced). City of Abbotsford based businesses can apply or renew an existing application in person at Abbotsford City Hall.
