Evaluation of Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada's BizPaL Service

In Canada, federal, provincial/territorial and municipal governments are involved in regulating business activities, making small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) subject to permit and licence requirements from all three levels of government. BizPaL, launched in 2006, aggregates licence and permit information from across levels of government, and gives businesses and third-party business service providers the ability to navigate this information through an online service. Through BizPaL, clients can receive a customized list of the permits and licences needed to conduct their business based on their locations, industry sector and business activities. As a result of BizPaL, business clients and governments are expected to benefit from Footnote 1:

  • A reduction on the burden of businesses resulting from identifying and complying with the regulatory requirements of all orders of government;
  • Improved service delivery for business clients; and
  • Opportunities from working collaboratively and providing whole-of-government solutions for businesses.
