Starting a New Business


Are you looking to build a business in the City of Maple Ridge? You may find that the most difficult part of starting a business is the initial setup and paperwork. The City, through BizPaL, is providing prospective business owners with easy, one-stop access to related business information.

Business Names, Partnerships & Limited Companies

Business names, partnerships and limited companies must be registered with the province. Names must be searched before they can be registered with the province. You may operate as a sole proprietor under your own name without need of registration of the company name. Appropriate forms are available from the government agent or online at the British Columbia Business Registry.
