New West Partnership and Extra-Provincial Registrations

If you are a Saskatchewan business and plan on carrying out business in another province, the business must be registered extra-provincially in those provinces.

If you are an extra-provincial business (business operating outside of Saskatchewan) and wish to conduct business in Saskatchewan you may complete a name reservation online via our Corporate Registry Application. 

New West Partnership

The New West Partnership Trade Agreement (NWP) is an agreement between British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan that creates efficiencies for registering businesses.

NWP Extra provincial registrations ONLY apply to:
  • business corporations.
  • limited partnerships,
  • limited liability partnerships, and
  • co-operatives.
Should any of the above business types want to register extra-provincially in British Columbia, Alberta or Saskatchewan, the NWP agreement stipulates:
  • The businesses home province will facilitate the registration on behalf of the business.
  • The businesses can choose to register extra-provincially at the time of registration or after the registration is complete.
  • There is also no additional cost to register the business in one of the partnering provinces. However, each province charges a fee for a name registration. For example if a Saskatchewan business corporation extra provincially registers in Alberta, an Alberta name reservation will have to be completed at the fee Alberta charges (not the Saskatchewan fee).
NWP extra-provincial name reservations and business corporations’ registrations may be done online via our Corporate Registry Application. If you are not in Alberta or British Columbia you may still register your business in Saskatchewan. You must complete the name reservation and registration/incorporation online in the Corporate Registry application for a fee.
