Advice for Home-Based Businesses

Many entrepreneurs choose to run a business out of their home. Each municipality has rules and requirements that apply to home-based business and it is important to understand these requirements. The Town of Collingwood, the Town of Wasaga Beach and the Town of Orangeville have published guides to help you establish and grow a home-based business and navigate the municipal by-laws.
