Saskatchewan Building and Accessibility Standards Appeal Board

The Saskatchewan Building and Accessibility Standards Appeal Board (the Appeal Board) hears appeals from owners:

  • for exemption from accessibility standards; and
  • for orders issued by building officials for compliance with the building, accessibility and energy standards.

Following review, the Appeal Board can hear the appeal and determine a decision for eligible requests. If you're determined ineligible, you will be notified with a written explanation that the appeal will not be heard.

When an appeal is heard, the board will provide a decision in writing within 30 days. The Appeal Board has the ability to confirm, revoke or vary an order issued by a building official. The local authority is required to enforce a decision of the Appeal Board.
