Square One’s role within the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program:

Landed Meetings:

Once you arrive in Saskatoon, please email saskentrepreneur@gov.sk.ca with your updated information to request a landed meeting.

In this meeting we will  discuss your Business Performance Agreement (BPA) to ensure you fully understand your obligations and expectations. We will provide you with information such as pathfinding, referrals and resources to help you establish your business, as well as answer any question about establishing a business in Saskatchewan. We can also provide you with market research such as industry intelligence, competitor data, demographic and expenditure reports, and more.

Please bring the following to your Landed Meeting:

  • Permanent Resident card;
  • Health card;
  • Photo identification, such as Saskatchewan driver’s licence, etc.
  • Business Performance Agreement
  • Any other proof of residence, including lease agreement, rental receipt, utility bills

BPA Change Requests:

You may book a follow up after your landed meeting to discuss your BPA and to review possible changes to the term of the agreement, the business type and or the investment amount.  Square One is responsible for reviewing your proposed changes and providing a recommendation to the Government regarding your request.

What Square One will not do:

We will not help you write a BEP (business plan) or fill out any applications to the government.

We do not approve any government applications – we only  make recommendations on changes requested in a BPA before you submit a request to the Government.

Use a local expert (in Saskatoon) to help you develop a business plan/BEP. Use the SREDA Referral List to find a local expert who understands the local economy.
