Lift of the suspension on evictions

The Greater Saskatoon Chamber of Commerce recently showed our support for the recommendations put forward to the Government of Saskatchewan by the Saskatchewan Landlord Association, Saskatoon and Region Home Builders’ Association, Regina and Region Home Builders’ Association, and Saskatchewan REALTORS Association to consider amending the current suspension on evictions. Yesterday an announcement was made to lift the suspension as of August 4th, 2020. The Chamber is pleased to see that the Office of Residential Tenancies will once again begin hearing all applications, including evictions due to non-payment of rent. We recognize the challenges that both tenants and landlords have experienced over the last several months and encourage both parties to continualy work towards mutually beneficial agreements.
