Government Introduces Bill 1

Released on May 24, 2016

Removing SLGA from The Crown Corporations Public Ownership Amendment Act

Crown Investments Corporation Minister Don McMorris today introduced amendments to The Crown Corporations Public Ownership Act.

“This amending legislation will allow government to convert 40 government liquor stores to private stores and create 12 new retail opportunities, something Saskatchewan people supported resoundingly in the election,” McMorris said.  “This will give Saskatchewan consumers more choice, more convenience, and more competitive pricing.”

The amendment removes the Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority from the list of Crown corporations subject to the Act.  This will provide clarity for government as it moves to an expanded  private system of alcohol retailing in Saskatchewan.

“Through the consultation process held in 2015, we received valuable feedback from the public on liquor retailing in the province,” McMorris said.  “This amendment to the legislation will allow government to implement a competitive system that is both fair to retailers and beneficial to consumers while ensuring revenue neutrality for the province.”
