Public Input Sought On Trespass Legislation

Released on September 13, 2018

The Government of Saskatchewan is reviewing trespass legislation to determine if changes are needed to better address the balance between rural landowners and the public.

Existing access and posting rules vary for different activities under The Trespass to Property Act, The Wildlife Act, 1998, The All-Terrain Vehicles Act, The Snowmobile Act and The Provincial Lands Regulations.

These different rules may contribute to confusion on what legally constitutes trespassing.

As part of the review, the Ministry of Justice is asking Saskatchewan citizens for their input.

In particular:
  • Should all access by members of the public to rural property require the express advance permission of the rural land owner regardless of the activity?
  • If so, how should permission be sought and granted?
The questionnaire can be found at https://www.saskatchewan.ca/residents/justice-crime-and-the-law/review-of-trespass-related-legislation.

Please provide responses to the questionnaire by October 1, 2018 to:

Ministry of Justice
Legislative Services Branch
Attn: Review of Trespass Related Legislation
800 – 1874 Scarth Street
Regina, SK S4P 4B3
