For Immediate Release: January 29, 2014
The City of Saskatoon (City) Business License Program is pleased to announce the launch of Business License Online. This new tool provides a convenient method for business operators to apply for or renew their Business License online. It is safe, easy to use, and accepts payments from major credit cards. New business license applications and renewals may continue to be submitted by mail or in person.
“The City is very pleased to offer this online service to businesses,” says Alan Wallace, Director of Planning and Development. “As part of the Saskatoon Strategic Plan, the City continues to offer a business-friendly environment by providing value-added services and improvements in efficiency.”
While new business license applications have been accepted online for the past year, the opportunity to renew online is now also available. Instructions will be provided on the renewal notice mailed to business owners approximately two weeks prior to the expiration of their license.
As of December 31, 2013, there were 10,265 licensed businesses based out of Saskatoon, an increase of 3.2 percent since 2012. As this number grows, the Business License Program works to enhance services to ensure that Saskatoon attracts and supports new and established businesses.
