Entrepreneurs in Yellowknife now have access to a powerful online tool for eliminating red tape.

Yellowknife is the 30th community to gain access to the BizPal service, which provides single-window access to business permitting and licensing across municipal, federal, and territorial government.

The Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT) collaborated with the City of Yellowknife and the Government of Canada on getting the service up-and-running.

The move comes in response to the needs of small businesses, who expressed their desire for a streamlined process for starting a business in the Northwest Territories (NWT), and in support of regional economic development and diversity.

As 90% of businesses in the NWT are considered small business, BizPal will have a significant impact in its capital city.
