Winter Business Opportunity

Thinking about operating a short-term winter business in our parks?

Saskatchewan provincial parks are year-round destinations, and we at Sask Parks want opportunities for our visitors to reflect that. Do you have a specialized skill set or unique idea that would make for a great business? 

The benefits:

  1. Low cost investment
    One business license can provide access to more than 15 different provincial parks across the province. License fees are $200, plus a percentage of revenue. Terms and conditions apply.
  2. We are open year-round and facilities are already in place
    In many of our parks, we have skating rinks, warm-up shelters, groomed trails, tobogganing hills and even year-round accommodations. 
  3. Free advertising
    Sask Parks will help advertise your business through social media, newsletters and more to help encourage visitors to get out and enjoy your offerings.
