There are many advantages to operating a business out of your home. You may eliminate time and gas required to commute to work, and you may reduce your business overhead costs. It is important to note that not all home-based businesses are permitted. The City of Ottawa regulates the types of home businesses which are permitted, as well as the size of the business. Before you decide to move your business to your home, first determine whether your business complies with City of Ottawa bylaws.
Check with your municipal office to determine the restriction in your area.
