Consultation: Legal Services in Saskatchewan

The Law Society of Saskatchewan is exploring the provision of legal services in the province and legal service needs. The Law Society recognizes that some groups and individuals providing limited legal services, who are not lawyers, may not fall neatly within the current list of exemptions to the practice of law. Through a notice process, the Law Society is seeking to identify those groups and individuals. Identification and review of legal service providers who do not fall within existing exemptions will inform the development of new or expanded exemptions where appropriate and, in other cases, will provide the foundation for consideration of new categories of limited licensees. See the   Consultation page   for more information on this process and share this information with any interested party.  
Firefighter Occupational Disease Coverage Expanded in Workers Compensation Act

Recent amendments to The Workers' Compensation Act, 2013 has expanded the list of occupational diseases covered by the rebuttable presumption for firefighters. The expanded list now includes six additional cancers that were not previously covered by the Workers' Compensation Board (WCB ) .

Amendments to the firefighters’ presumptive coverage include coverage for volunteer and part-time firefighters who are or have been exposed to the hazards of a fire scene, other than a forest fire.

The WCB is reviewing old claims that were not previously covered to determine if they would be an acceptable work injury under the new legislation.

Advocacy Update
Resolution Results

Each year at Convention, our members bring forward resolutions important to their community, region, or sector. Resolutions passed by the membership shape our advocacy efforts.

Of the 20 resolutions, 15 were carried . You can see the full descriptions of the Convention 2020 resolutions (carried and defeated) on our resolution database. All carried resolutions will be forwarded to the appropriate ministry or organization, and we will update the database when we receive full responses.
