We want your input and your concerns for all Business Licensing By-law Schedules within Hamilton's Licensing By-law 07-170 (PDF, 2 MB)

Why we are reviewing the By-law

The purpose of reviewing and rewriting the Business Licensing By-law is to:

  • modernize the City’s licensing system with the intent to reduce the red-tape for our current and new community businesses

Modernizing the Business Licensing By-law is a key element in the City’s ongoing Open For Business initiative.
