Entrepreneurship is one of the keys to job creation in Saskatchewan. Entrepreneurs, working alone or in co-operatives, create the small businesses that provide most of the jobs in the province. The 2023 Small Business Profile report shows that:

  • Small businesses (those with fewer than 50 employees) account for 98.8% of the over 147,000 businesses operating in Saskatchewan.
  • Small businesses provide most of the jobs in the province. In 2022, small businesses employed about 31% of the province’s workers.
  • In 2022, small businesses accounted for 24% of Saskatchewan’s GDP.
