To get started, see below for basic steps on setting up a business in Saskatchewan. These steps should be completed after or during fulfilling all industry laws, standards and expectations pertaining to your idea.
1. Decide the structure of business you want to operate under
Download our Fact Sheet: Structures of Business.
2. Register your name under your chosen structure
Information Services Corporation’s Corporate Registry maintains information for all legal entities, businesses and non-profit organizations registered with the province of Saskatchewan.
This is a two-step process and requires two payments: 1) submit and reserve a name, 2) register or incorporate the name.
3. Open other business administration accounts
Once you complete the registration process above, you will be able to open sales tax, bank and insurance accounts, as well as conduct most business activities.
4. Acquire a business license
Submit a completed application and pay the appropriate fee to your municipality. See some links for popular cities below or simply visit your municipality’s website to search for information for businesses. FNIM operating on reserve should contact their Band Office or Tribal Council.
