Completing this application is only the first step in acquiring a business licence.

  • A business cannot be opened or operated until the City of Abbotsford reviews the application and issues a business licence.
  • SOCAN - If you use live or recorded music in your business, please visit for licensing information as it is Federal Copyright Law.
