McGuinty Government Making It Easier For Businesses To Start Up And Grow

The launch of BizPaL in Dryden today is making it easier for entrepreneurs to start up and grow a business in Ontario.  Local businesses in Dryden can use BizPaL to get a customized list of the permits and licences they need from all levels of government to start or expand their business.
