Hi,

Can I establish a Book Café in my basement if it is rented?

Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

It is great that you are looking into the details before starting your business. It is really important to make sure that all of the legalities related to this type of business are covered.

It would be important to check out any Toronto City By-Laws that may apply to what type of businesses can be run from basements.

If this is a rented premises, it is also important that you confirm the possibility with your Landlord.

We suggest that you may also want to contact the nearest Toronto Business Development Centre or Enterprise Toronto location for some information and assistance regarding starting a business. They may also be able to help you find out some information regarding any by-laws that apply.

I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions and if there is any follow up to your question/situation.
