Starting Your Business

Central Saanich welcomes your business and we are pleased to answer any questions you may have. If you are planning on opening or altering your business, please review the following.


Land and Building Use

Before you sign a lease or purchase a commercial space, it is important to confirm that your proposed location complies with zoning regulations as well as the BC Building Code.


Now that you have confirmed that the location and the approved building use works for your new business, permits may be required to make alterations to your space or building.

Business Licence

After confirming zoning and building use and obtained any required permits, you could then submit an application for a business licence.
