The Government has concluded consultations on proposed changes to The Mines Regulations, 2003. These regulations govern minimum health and safety standards in Saskatchewan mines. The consultations have concluded and the Ministry of Labour Relations and Workplace Safety (Ministry) is in the process of preparing amendments.
In April 2015, the Ministry held the first phase of consultations.
In January 2016, the Ministry began phase two of consultations. The proposed changes were outlined in The Mines Regulations, 2003 Proposed Changes Consultation Guide. Users were invited to provide feedback using online surveys. This phase of consultations ended on June 30, 2016.
Thank you to everyone who provided feedback. The Ministry has reviewed all submissions and is in the process of drafting amendments. The amendments to The Mines Regulations, 2003 will be announced in 2017.
