The District of Fort St. James regulates business licences through the Business Licence Bylaw. All businesses operating within District boundaries must purchase and maintain a municipal business licence. Business licences range from $50 – $400 per year, and seasonal licences can be purchased for 50% of the full year fee.
A list of local businesses is available in the District’s Directory.
You can download a Business Licence application and send the completed form to the municipal office, or apply online through BizPal.
