About Richmond Business Directory

Search and Download
The directory provides a complete listing of businesses that hold a valid Business Licence at the time of online publication.

The directory has been divided into two groupings: those businesses that have a location in Richmond and those that have locations outside of Richmond but come into Richmond to provide services.

Not included in the directory are businesses up for renewal or government agencies. (Under the Business Licence bylaw all vending/game machines and vehicles being used in the Vehicle For Hire category are required to be licenced. They are not included in the directory).

The directory is sorted in numerical order using the North American Industry Classification coding (NAICS). The NAICS defines the general industry sector in which the business operates based on the product or service provided. The NAICS coding groups “like” businesses together. For example businesses that provide the service of gas contracting, plumbing, air conditioning or repair of heating systems are grouped together under NAICS code “232520”. An index listing the NAICS codes used is provided as a separate document.
