Dear Friends,

Greetings on behalf of the Saskatchewan Bed and Breakfast Association. We are the voluntary, not-for-profit organization that brings together, represents and promotes all the accredited bed and breakfasts, guest houses and guest ranches in Saskatchewan.

SBBA operates a B&B quality assurance program: to be a member of SBBA, the bed and breakfast first needs to be inspected and accredited by SBBA. Only once a B&B has been inspected and accredited is it eligible to become a member.

The benefits of membership in the Saskatchewan Bed and Breakfast Association include being listed on the SBBA website (www.bbsask.ca), being included in the association’s annual print directory of accredited B&Bs, and being able to use the Black Rooster logo with BBCanada.com, Tourism Saskatchewan and in the B&B’s own marketing material to assure potential guests that the B&B has been inspected by SBBA and has met their quality assurance standards. Other benefits of membership include access to loans of up to $20,000 at an interest rate of 5%, networking with other members, quarterly newsletters, and much more! Consultation and support is offered through the SBBA office to all members.

So if you already operate a bed and breakfast and would like to join the community of B&B operators in Saskatchewan, or if you are simply thinking of starting a bed and breakfast, please visit our website (www.bbsask.ca) and see the “Join Us” section.

Please feel free to contact the SBBA office any time by phone or e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely
Bryan Tudor
Executive Director
