Making your business idea legal early in the process, plays an important part in starting your business. Government sources and business associations have great resources to help you get started on the right foot.
If you are interested in looking for regulations or guides that are from a government site, you may use the site limiter function in a search engine to search within a site. For example, if you are interested in the regulations of setting up a business in Vancouver, you may type:
Business regulations in Vancouver site: gc.ca
Business regulations in Vancouver site: bc.ca
The search results will then show you sources that have gc.ca or bc.ca ending in their address. For the United States, you may use site:.gov.
