Building Legislation and Regulations

The Government of Saskatchewan recently passed The Construction Codes Act (Bill 4) in the Legislative Assembly. The new CCA comes into effect on January 1, 2022, and will repeal and replace The Uniform Building and Accessibility Standards Act.

For more information, read the May 11, 2021, media release.

The Uniform Building and Accessibility Standards Act provides the legislative framework for the application of building, accessibility and energy standards.

Application of building, accessibility and energy standards is a shared responsibility.

  • The building owner is responsible to comply with building, accessibility and energy standards.
  • The local authority (municipality) is responsible for administration and enforcement of the standards.
  • The Government of Saskatchewan is responsible for the legislative, regulatory and policy framework.
  • Licensed building officials provide services to the municipality.
  • Architects, engineers and contractors provide services to building owners.
