The City of Flin Flon encourages the development of new and existing businesses within the community in a number of ways. For businesses using existing buildings, it will provide advice and consultation about relevant standards, from a municipal perspective, including fees, taxes and permit arrangements, including occupancy permits. Home business licenses are available for businesses that meet appropriate criteria.
For projects involing new construction, the City will provide general advice on zoning and construction standards and it issues permits relative to these and other relevenant matters such as demolition.
The City also has a variety of lots available for development of different sizes and in different areas of the city. In the case of large capital projects with a high potential for generating employment, a discount rate on city land, including outright donation, may be considered.
