Can I establish a business in my home?

To establish a business in your home, you will need a Home Occupation Permit (HOP) approved by Planning. Businesses may be conducted out of a residence provided they meet certain requirements. In order to protect other residents in a neighborhood, any business operated out of a home must not change the appearance of the house, attract commercial traffic, or involve outdoor operations or storage.
