No matter what type of business you plan on starting, there are many rules and regulations to be wary of. Every sector of business has their own laws surrounding what can/can not be done, what type of research and safety regulations need to be followed, and certain standards that you must follow even before operations commence. In addition, there are different sets of regulations in place depending on federal, provincial and municipal standards, which can often leave business owners in uncompliant spots for laws they were completely unaware of. Failing to comply with business standards can lead to losing the business.
