Use BizPal To Learn About Licenses And Permits In Saskatchewan

Saskatchewan has teamed with Industry Canada’s BizPal website to provide an easy way to find out which licenses and permits you need to start your business.

The BizPal website is an effort by Industry Canada to make it easier for business owners across the country to get the information they need on licenses and permits. Not all municipalities are involved but Saskatchewan has managed to engage a large number of participants. The participating Saskatchewan municipalities are:

Arcola Asquith Assiniboia Balcarres Battleford
Bienfait Big River Biggar Broadview Bruno
Canora Carlyle Carnduff Carrot River Churchbridge
Corman Park Coronach Cudworth Cupar Whitewood
Cut Knife Dalmeny Davidson Delisle Duck Lake
Dundurn Edenwold Esterhazy Estevan Eston
Fort Qu’Appelle Gravelbourg Grenfell Gull Lake Hague
Herbert Hudson Bay Humboldt Indian Head Yorkton
Kamsack Kelvington Kerrobert Kindersley Kinistino
Kipling Lampman Langenburg Langham Lanigan
Lashburn Leader Lloydminster Lumsden Luseland
Macklin Maidstone Maple Creek Martensville Wilkie
Meadow Lake Melfort Melville Moose Jaw Moosomin
Nipawin North Battleford Osler Outlook Oxbow
Pilot Butte Porcupine Plain Preeceville Prince Albert Radville
Redvers Regina Regina Beach Rosetown Wolseley
Rosthern Saskatoon Shaunavon Shellbrook Southey
Spiritwood Stoughton Strasbourg Sturgis Swift Current
Tisdale Unity Wakaw Waldheim Warman
Watrous Watson Weyburn White City Wynyard

If you don’t see your community on this list, you’ll have to contact local municipal office directly. The BizPal site is a useful tool but you’ll notice that you get back a lot of possible permits or licenses. You still have to sort the wheat from the chaff yourself. It’s still a good tool but hopefully this is something that will improve in future updates to the site.
