Municipalities have the authority to enact bylaws concerning nuisances that affect property, activities or things affecting the municipality. Nuisances can include overgrown grass, weeds, lumber debris or even junked vehicles.

What one person considers a nuisance may be considered by another person as their right. That is why municipalities can establish what they consider a nuisance and establish enforcement options within a nuisance abatement bylaw. Enforcement options include:

  • investigating reports of a possible nuisance;
  • issuing orders to remedy the contravention; and
  • registering an interest to the title to the land.

As mentioned earlier, a nuisance can also include weeds. Saskatchewan has legislation called The Weed Control Act. The Act mandates owners and occupants to prevent the growth, ripening and spread of weeds and weed seeds. For more information about weed control:

  • contact your municipal office;
  • contact the Ministry of Agriculture at 866-457-2377; or
  • visit Agriculture's Weed section.
