How do I get a business licence?
The completed Business Licence Application Form can be dropped off in person, emailed, faxed or mailed to the Town’s Development Services department. Alternatively, you may wish to use the One Stop Business Registry. Once you complete the registration process through One Stop, a completed Business Licence application will be e-mailed to Sidney. Once received, staff will contact you to finalize your Business Licence application details.
