Inter-Community Business Licence

If your business operates in more than one jurisdiction and the business you conduct performs a service in more than one community (by moving from client to client rather than having a client come to a fixed place of business), an Inter-Community Business Licence could be for you. The types of businesses included in the InterCommunity Licencing program, include but are not limited to the following:

  • General Contractors
  • Trades (Plumbers, Electricians, etc.)
  • Cleaning Services
  • Pest Control

This licence includes the following participating municipalities and the yearly fee is $250.00:     

City of Campbell River 250-286-5700
Town of Comox 250-339-2202
Village of Cumberland 250-336-2291
City of Duncan 250-746-6126

What if my business is outside all of these participating local governments?

Businesses that do not have a physical location in any of the participating communities must first obtain a standard business licence from any one of the participating communities and then also obtain an Inter-Community Business Licence from that same community.
