Things To Keep In Mind As You Prepare To Submit Your Application:

- All RFM Applicants selling food products will be assessed by Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA). We encourage applicants to contact a Public Health Inspector to discuss their business plans and ensure they will meet the SHA regulations in advance of submitting applications, but we can also help you through this process after applying to the RFM.
