We know small businesses just aren’t the same as large developers or property managers. Small businesses need more personalized customer service, quicker turnaround times and answers – lots of answers.

That’s why the City – with input from BIAs – has just opened a Small Business Commercial Renovation Centre – a one-stop-shop for small businesses needing help with renovations, starting a business or negotiating the City’s by-laws and regulations.

In particular, the Centre will provide small business customers with:

  • access to knowledgeable staff who can provide clear direction around permits and process;
  • timely assessment of project viability; and
  • continued support through the process to business licence issuance.

Contact the Commercial Renovation Centre through its new website.
