Business Licensing By-law Review at Niagara Region

Niagara Region is responsible for all business licensing, inspection and enforcement services.

To modernize and serve Niagara residents better, we're reviewing our Business Licensing by-laws. 
The review process includes several steps, including public engagement through an online survey​ and public information centres.

By collecting your input, we hope to improve the overall client experience with our business licensing services. These revised by-laws will then be submitted to Niagara Region Council for final approval.
