Government Rules & Regs

  • Due to zoning restrictions, I'm unable to register a home-based business -so what now?

That is unusual. You don't mention where you're from, so we can't check into it for you. In fact, I am not aware of any jurisdiction in Canada that does not permit the operation of a home-based business - perhaps you are from outside Canada?

Some types of businesses are not permitted in some neighbourhoods. For example, you'd be hard pressed to get approval to operate a manufacturing business within a neighbourhood. But generally speaking, Canada is pro-home-based business.
