Business licence application forms can be obtained by mail, fax, online or at the Bylaw, Licensing & Community Safety Department at City Hall. Applicants are required to complete the application in full and provide a minimum payment of $110. We have a guide to assist you with applying for a business licence.
If you are moving your business to another location in the City of Maple Ridge, a new Business Licence Application must be completed and submitted to the Bylaw, Licensing & Community Safety Department. If the applicant holds a current business licence and is a home-based daycare or commercial business, a transfer fee of $50 must accompany the new application. If the applicant does not have a current City of Maple Ridge Business Licence the minimum licence fee of $110.00 must accompany the application. Applications can also be found online or at the Bylaw, Licensing & Community Safety Department front counter.
If you are changing the name of your business, please complete the Business Licence Name Change Form and submit to the Bylaw, Licensing & Community Safety Department.
Application forms are available online, in person at our Bylaw, Licensing & Community Safety Department, by email, fax, or regular mail. To receive an application by email please send us an email letting us know that you would like an application. To receive an application by fax or regular mail please call our Bylaw, Licensing & Community Safety Department at 604-467-7440.
It really depends what type of application you have submitted (e.g. home-based, daycare, commercial or non-resident). A non-resident business licence may be issued on the spot. However a home-based business licence or commercial licence may take up to 10 business days or more to issue. Home-based businesses and commercial businesses are subject to inspections prior to issuance. If you want to know the status of your business licence application, please contact our Bylaw, Licensing & Community Safety Department staff at 604-467-7440 or 604-467-7305.
