Business Registration

ISC (Information Services Corporation) administers the registration and regulation of businesses in Saskatchewan.  Below are the steps to registering your business, this can be done through ISC’s website or Square One can assist you through the registration process in-person or over the phone.

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.

Sole Proprietorship
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 existence apart from its shareholders and directors.

A co-operative is a term used to describe a business that is owned and democratically controlled by its members.

STEP 2: Reserve a Name with ISC

The name for your business should be unique and easy to remember, as well as describe the products and services you provide. You need a distinctive term (the fun part) and descriptive term (explaining what products or services you offer, what industry you are in). If your name is available and reserved for you, it now needs to be registered or incorporated.

STEP 3: Prepare to Register your Business

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. Ensure you have the personal contact information for all owners’, a physical location for your business (cannot be a P.O. Box), a mailing address. You may need to submit additional information depending on the structure.

STEP 4: Register your Business

Once you have reserved a business name and have gathered the required information, you can register your business through your online ISC Corporate Registry Portal.
