The Town of Wasaga Beach requires that all business obtain a license to operate within the Town. This includes home based businesses.
Prior to being issued a license, business locations must first be approved by the Building and Planning Departments regarding suitable zoning, parking, etc. and then inspected by the Town’s Fire and Property Standards Departments. All food related businesses must also have the approval of the Simcoe/Muskoka District Health Unit (705) 445-0804.
Home occupations must also have a business license and are restricted somewhat in order to maintain the residential character of the surrounding neighborhood. A copy of the home occupation regulations can also be obtained at the By-law/Licensing Office or by reviewing Schedule 22 of the Business Licensing By-law or the Town’s Zoning By-law.
Business license applications are also available in the By-law/Licensing Office at the Town Administration Office, 30 Lewis Street, Wasaga Beach. You may contact our Business Licensing Officer at (705) 429-2511 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m, Monday to Friday.
