Opening A New Business
Here are some things to consider before leasing or purchasing a premise for which a licence is required:
Leasing a premise

If you intend to lease a premise for which a licence is required, be sure to include a clause or condition in the offer to lease that the offer will be void if a licence is not granted for zoning reasons (land use).

If a premise is not zoned for the business you intend to operate, you may wish to request that your landlord apply to the Committee of Adjustment requesting a minor variance hearing.

Also, include a clause to the effect that the landlord shall rectify any building defects that are addressed by the Ontario Building Code, Ontario Fire Code or municipal property standard by-laws within 60 days, thus enabling the lessee to obtain the licence applied for.

Purchasing a premise
  1. Contact the local zoning office to find out if the area in which the premise is situated permits the intended use.
  2. If zoning permits the intended use, what costs would be involved to meet the Ontario Building Code Standards for the type of licence required, for example:
  • washroom facilities
  • fire and exit doors
  • parking facilities
  • sprinkler and alarm systems.
For zoning information, contact the local Toronto Building Division area office:
