Corporate Registry (Information Services Corporation, ISC) maintains information for all legal entities, businesses and non-profit organizations registered with the province of Saskatchewan. Square One can assist you with the following registration process through ISC.
STEP 1: Choose your Business Type
All types of business structures can be registered easily online. Check out the information provided by entity type to determine which business type is right for you.
A sole proprietorship is a business with only one owner. It is the simplest and most flexible business structure. The owner may be either an individual or a corporation.
A partnership is a business owned by one or more individuals or corporations. Within a partnership, each partner is potentially liable for all debts of the partnership.
A business corporation is a legal entity that has a separate legal existence apart from its shareholders and directors. It is sometimes also referred to as a limited company.
A co-operative is a term used to describe a business organisation that is owned and democratically controlled by its members. A new generation co-operative is a distinct type of organization which is collectively owned and democratically controlled by its members.
STEP 2: Reserve a Name
The name for your business should be unique and easy to remember, and should describe the products and services you provide.
ISC’s online registration allows you to register with Corporate Registry, Ministry of Finance, and Saskatchewan Workers’ Compensation Board all at the same time. If you wish to register with these agencies, you may be required to provide additional information. You will also be automatically registered for the Canada Revenue Agency Business Number program.
STEP 4: Register your Business
Once you have reserved a business name and have gathered the required information, you can register your business.
