News and notices

Construction Code Act
The Construction Code Act repeals and replaces The Uniform Building and Accessibility Standards Act and came into force on January 1, 2022.

Farm buildings which have a residential occupancy (i.e. sleeping quarters) are now subject to the construction standards found in the Construction Code Act. To clarify, there is no longer an exemption from construction standards (building permits) for farm residences on agricultural land that are being constructed, renovated, altered or added to. Building Permit Applications can be found on the Development page.

Carbon monoxide and smoke alarms
Effective July 1, 2022, all buildings in Saskatchewan with sleeping rooms are required to provide early warning protection against the effects of carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning, smoke and fire. The installation of CO and smoke alarms is the most effective way of accomplishing this requirement. More information about CO and smoke alarms
