We will:

  • Streamline the permitting process for business licences – especially for change of use
  • Increase licensing flexibility for home-based businesses in residential neighbourhoods
  • Allow bars to remain open until 3am
  • Lobby the provincial government for split assessments to reduce property tax pressure on small businesses, arts organizations, and non-profits
  • Pilot free parking studies for hard hit commercial zones like Chinatown and Punjabi Market
