Oakville launches new online business licence application

Tuesday, December 07, 2021
The Town of Oakville has launched a new online application for business licensing. The new process allows businesses requiring new licences, or looking to renew their licence, to fill out an application, submit documentation, and complete payment - all in one convenient online space. 

Businesses can access the online application at www.oakville.ca. A secure account is needed to submit an online application and access many of our other services. 

To assist customers with the transition to this new online format, new business licence applications will be accepted by email until January 1, 2022 and any existing licensees applying for renewal will have until January 15, 2022. After this time, all applications will be accepted through the online process only. 

The new business licence applications process is the first of a number of Municipal Enforcement Services that are being offered online. Noise exemption and sign permit applications will be offered online in early 2022. The result will be easier, faster, and transparent process.
