Businesses establishing at a commercial or industrial location in Unity must submit a Development Permit Application (found here) to the Unity Town Office and be approved prior to commencing- businesses located in commercial properties in Unity are not required to purchase a municipal business license.

Businesses located outside of Unity (as well as contractors in Unity who do not operate from a physical industrial or commercial property) who are wanting to do business in Unity must complete a Business License Application (found here) and be approved and licensed prior to doing business in Unity.

Individuals in Unity who are wanting to start a home-based business must submit a Development Permit Application (found here) to the Unity Town Office. **Note that home-based businesses are discretionary uses in the Town of Unity and therefore notice of the intent to establish a home-based business will be given to a number of the prospective home-based business's neighbours, and consideration and potential approval at a future Unity Town Council meeting by Council will be required prior to the operation of any home-based business in Unity.
