City Launches BizPaL

BizPaL, a new online permit and licence research service network has launched on the City of Medicine Hat website thanks to the Business Support Office and Planning, Building and Development department.

BizPaL is an innovative and interactive service that incorporates the business permit and licence process for entrepreneurs, governments, and third party business service providers. BizPaL provides business clients, especially new business startups, with the information they need to meet all permit and licence requirements quickly and efficiently. BizPaL is available on-line whenever the client needs to seek information.

“BizpaL is a terrific, easy to use on-line tool that provides entrepreneurs and business owners with the permit and licence information for Medicine Hat that they need to grow or start their business,” says Keith Crush, business development officer. “This is part of an ongoing effort to ensure our community supports and encourages business development.”

A partnership between all levels of government – federal, provincial and municipal – BizPaL provides one stop easy access to all permit and licence requirements. “It is a great tool to cut down on the research and paperwork associated with prior licence and permit requirements,” says Crush.

    Just tried this out for a fairly obscure company idea I’ve been mowing over (not that I am going to do it in the near future), but it seems to have pretty much any type of business fathomable including things like an “Animal Hotel”.

    It works really good to grab all the permit and contact information you will need. Most of the cost and waiting periods were all “Varies” which isn’t that helpful, but I assume it will get more accurate information for less obscure business models.
