Business permit

No commercial operation permit is required by the Municipality of La Nation. The operation of a business is governed by zoning regulations.  Some municipalities issue an operating permit and it must be renewed annually. This system allows you to keep an up-to-date company register.  The Nation invites new businesses to fill out this form to report your existence and share your contact details with us. The municipality will be able to share with you grant opportunities, funding, specific programs affecting your sector of activity, and more.
