Start a Business

Thinking about starting a business? 

Being a successful entrepreneur requires a lot of planning, innovation, and the willingness to take risks.  It requires hard work and dedication but if you’re up to the challenge, there are many potential benefits!

Looking to start/take over a business in Petawawa?

We have gathered some resources which can help you with your business planning.  Some municipal level requirements for business operations must conform to municipal zoning, the Official Plan, and by-laws that regulate business in a given community.  Since these requirements are not universally the same it is always best to consult with the municipality prior to signing any lease or purchase agreements.  We are here to help your business succeed!
