Board of Revision Training
For the 2023 taxation year, all board of revision members and secretaries in Saskatchewan are required to take mandatory training offered through the Johnson Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy (JSGS). This is the first step of certifying a board of revision.
Once all board members and the secretary have completed the training program, the board must apply for certification to the Registrar. Boards of revision, rather than individuals, will be certified by the Registrar. Only certified boards will be allowed to hear property assessment appeals in the 2023 taxation year and thereafter.
The training registration opened on January 4, 2022. To know more about the training program, please visit the JSGS Board of Revision (BoR) Training Program.
Regulatory changes have instituted certification requirements for boards of revision to help ensure proficiency at the first level of appeal. For the 2023 property taxation year, all boards of revision must be certified by the Office of the Registrar to hear assessment appeals.
Boards may apply for certification as soon as they meet the eligibility criteria as the application process opened June 1, 2022.

The board of revision is responsible for applying for certification, not the municipality.
Council needs to ensure its appointed board of revision has been certified by the registrar before the board begins hearing property assessment appeals for the 2023 taxation year.
Boards should apply to the registrar for certification when all the following conditions are met:
- Every member and secretary of the board of revision has:
- Completed the required training; and
- Taken an Oath of Office.
- The board has completed the required application form (see How to Apply).
- Within 30 days after being appointed by a council and not later than the day on which the assessment roll is prepared.
How to Apply
Read the Board of Revision Certification Guide to learn more about the application process.
All applications for certification should be received as soon as possible before the assessment roll is prepared to make sure outstanding issues, if any, are resolved.
The registrar will contact a board within 10 business days after receiving their application if:
- Their application is not complete, and the board needs to reapply; and/or
- The registrar requires any additional information or clarification from the board.
After reviewing completed applications, the registrar will inform a board of its certification status via email with:
- A copy of the confirmation; or
- A copy of written reason denying certification.
