How to Apply for a Business Licence
Inter-Community Business Licences
If you take your business on the road anywhere between Campbell River and Duncan (e.g. as a tradesperson, cleaning service provider, or pest control service provider), you can apply for an additional inter-community business licence by using the form above. Find out more about Inter-Community Business Licences here.
Renewing Your Licence
Invoices to renew your licences for the following year are mailed to you in November each year. To renew your licence, the fee must be paid by December 15.
Cannabis Retail Sales
Cannabis retail sales require a temporary use permit to meet land use requirements as well as a business licence. View the Cannabis Retail Sales policy for more information. Check the Village’s Bids and Tenders page for cannabis retail sales requests for proposals, or contact planning staff at the Village office at 250-336-2291 for more information.
Home Based Businesses
A business licence is required to operate a home based business in the Village of Cumberland. Please check with the Village whether your business and its signage is permitted under the Zoning Bylaw.
