I'm in Quebec, but I am not sure about liscensing. Would love to know though. Just make sure your buisness name is French icon_wink.gif

I dont know if it's specifically licensing, I just want to be legal... I'm already selling stuff and I dont want to get into problems with the government.

ha..ha..don't want the language police banging on your door...lol

On a serious note, I'm also from Quebec and getting legit depends on which arrondissement you're from. Some will let you do it at home, some won't unless you are in a commercial zone but all have said it has to be a separate kitchen that is licenced by the MAPAQ.

Back then when we were looking for a house, I wanted to do my research if I can have my cake biz at home. I spoke to someone from the city hall and he said we are not allowed because the zoning is residential but he also basically told us that as long as we keep a low profile they would look the other way. lol...and this is coming from a city official.
