Business Licence Bylaw changes

  • Licences must be renewed annually by paying the applicable licence fee within seven days of expiration.
  • Failure to renew will require the Licensee to submit a new licence application.
  • Failure to renew and continued operation of a business will result in a fine.

Changing an existing licence

The City of Prince George must be notified in the event of a change of address, change of name, or change of ownership or if a business has ceased to operate.
