New business in Kelowna?

Setting up a new business has never been easier says the City of Kelowna. 

In a new partnership with Service BC within the BC Ministry of Technology, Innovation and Citizens’ Services, Kelowna is streamlining the process for starting a new company.

Under the Ministry, BC Registry Services offers the OneStop Business Registry service for entrepreneurs registering a new business. This month, OneStop began offering new business owners the convenience of also completing a City of Kelowna Business Licence at the same time.

“This online service further streamlines the process for Kelowna’s business community, eliminating the need to visit multiple locations to complete the steps necessary to establish a new business,” said Kelowna Mayor Walter Gray.

Do you think the city is doing enough to encourage new startups?
