    For Immediate Release

    Kamloops Chamber pleased with mobile business license adoption in City of Kamloops. 
     
    Kamloops, BC – The Kamloops Chamber of Commerce is pleased with Kamloops City Council’s decision yesterday to adopt the mobile business licence partnership.
     
    After years of working with Council and staff to help save businesses time and money, the news of yesterday’s vote at Council was welcomed. Mobile Business Licenses offer many benefits, including:
     

    • Reducing administrative burden
    • Reducing license application processing
    • Allowing businesses to operate where their services are needed
    • Increasing choice in service providers and increases in consumer confidence
     
    The mobile business license partnership was an idea that originated from a policy presented by the Kamloops Chamber of Commerce and became BC Chamber policy in 2010.
     
    Joshua Knaak, President, Board of Directors for the Kamloops Chamber of Commerce:
    “ The Kamloops Chamber is excited to hear about the adoption of the mobile business partnership in Kamloops. The Kamloops Chamber originally brought this forward to the BC Chamber in 2010 and to see it finally come to fruition in Kamloops is fantastic. This means our businesses can now operate in smaller communities where their services are needed.”
