Inter-Municipal Business Licence
The Inter-Municipal Business Licence (IMBL) reduces red tape by allowing construction and trades-related businesses to operate in more than one municipality, rather than by obtaining non-resident licences in each municipality in which they operate.
The cost of the IMBL is $250, and is in addition to your existing Delta business licence. The IMBL is valid for one year.
Applications should be submitted to the municipal business licensing office of your home municipality (where your business is presently located and licenced).
What are the advantages?
- Municipalities: Less paperwork and greater compliance with municipal regulations
- Businesses: Reduced time and cost, and simplified expansion into new markets
- Residents: More choice of contractors and service providers
Who is eligible?
Delta participates in two separate IMBL programs covering 16 municipalities. Construction and trades related businesses can purchase a Metro West IMBL to operate in Delta, Burnaby, New Westminster, Richmond, Surrey, and Vancouver and, beginning in January 2016, a Fraser Valley IMBL to operate in Delta, Surrey, Langley (Township and City), Abbotsford, Maple Ridge, Pitt Meadows, Mission, Chilliwack, Hope, and Kent.
