Highway Traffic Board

The Highway Traffic Board is an independent quasi-judicial administrative tribunal responsible for hearing appeals for a number of programs administered by Saskatchewan Government Insurance (SGI), as well as administering other transportation regulatory functions.

Hearings are regarding decisions made by SGI under The Traffic Safety Act and The Automobile Accident Insurance Act, and are related to penalties such as licence suspensions, vehicle impoundments, SGI program ratings, and commercial vehicle safety ratings. The Highway Traffic Board also reviews applications for operating authority certificates to allow shortline and industrial railways to operate in Saskatchewan.
