Making It Legal

What legalities do you need to follow as a business? Here are some things to consider:
• Has your business been registered with various levels of government?
• Do you have a Business Number for taxation and payroll purposes?
• Do you need any special permits?

The Saskatchewan Government’s BizPal website is especially helpful for determining which permits and licenses you will need for your business.

Information Services Corporation (ISC) is a Crown corporation in Saskatchewan responsible for registries. Its website contains useful information about regulation and registration for businesses.

Consulting a lawyer will ensure that you correctly follow the steps to making your business legal. The Canada-Saskatchewan Business Service Centre's Guest Advisor Program allows you to speak with a lawyer or business consultant for 30 minutes free of charge!
