Residential Based-Businesses

Home based businesses, home occupations (e.g. consulting, bookkeeping), and bed and breakfast facilities are discretionary uses in some residential neighbourhoods. To qualify for a business license you must first apply for a 'discretionary use' through the Development Permit Application form.

Then you will submit a Discretionary Use Application

Discretionary use applications must be reviewed and approved by Resort Village Council. There is also a requirement to issue a public notice to property owners within 75 meters of the property where the business will operate.  This process may take several weeks.
