Eviction Suspensions To Be Lifted

Released on July 6, 2020

Starting August 4, 2020, the Office of Residential Tenancies (ORT) will begin accepting eviction applications from landlords for non-payment of rent.

“When the pandemic began, we wanted to ensure tenants facing hardship as a result of COVID-19 were able to take the necessary social-distancing measures,” Justice Minister and Attorney General Don Morgan said.  “With the success of flattening the curve in Saskatchewan, we believe it’s appropriate to lift the moratorium on non-urgent evictions.”

Applicants will need to submit their application by email or mail to the ORT.  No in-person service will be offered at this time.  The ORT continues to encourage landlords and tenants to communicate with each other about their individual situations so that they can come to mutually agreeable solutions in this challenging time.

For additional information and forms to file an application, please visit www.saskatchewan.ca/ort.  The ORT can also be reached at ort@gov.sk.ca or 1-888-215-2222.
