Renewal period

The renewal period begins February 1. Apply for your renewal by March 1. This ensures we can process your permit before it expires on March 31.

If you do not apply for your renewal by March 1, you’ll need to pay a late fee of $200.

It's illegal to work in the new permit year before we've renewed your permit.

We typically review applications within 30 business days. We'll confirm you've met all the legal requirements before we issue your permit.

We cannot process your application if you have not provided us with all the documentation we need.
