Have you ever been asked to prove that your business exists by providing a business license number?

Business owners and other interested persons are being invited to an information session on a proposed new business licensing and regulation bylaw to be held at Dutch Lake Community Centre on Tuesday, Nov. 17, 7 p.m.

The session is being put on by District of Clearwater in partnership with Clearwater and District Chamber of Commerce.

According to a brochure from the District, besides giving business owners a way to prove that their businesses exist, business licensing would enable the municipality to monitor business activity within its jurisdiction.

It would also facilitate compliance with regard to municipal bylaws, as well as fire, building and health regulations.

Business licensing bylaws commonly regulate building safety, vehicle safety, business hours, location of adult-oriented businesses, canvassing or soliciting, and street vendors.

Proposed license fees would range from $100 for service, home-based based and similar businesses, to $1,000 for escort services and medical marijuana production facilities.
