Provincial Funding for Municipalities
During COVID-19

As part of their response to COVID-19, the Government of Saskatchewan has announced two funding programs for municipalities.

Fast-Tracked Municipal Revenue Sharing
All Saskatchewan municipalities compliant with Municipal Revenue Sharing requirements (submission of the municipality's audited financial statement) will receive their Municipal Revenue Sharing funding in full next month.

The provincial government announced on May 7 that Municipal Revenue Sharing is being  fast tracked for the 2020-21 year  and Municipal Revenue Sharing funds will be paid to municipalities in full in June to help alleviate short-term financial pressures.

Municipal Economic Enhancement Program
The Municipal Economic Enhancement Program (MEEP), last active in 2009, will provide  $150 million in capital project funding  to municipalities.

All municipalities will be sent a personalized package via email detailing their funding allocation, providing the project application template, and defining eligible projects.

Municipalities of Saskatchewan has been advocating for a number of years for a provincial infrastructure program and is extremely pleased to see the Government of Saskatchewan implement such a program to help foster economic recovery.
New FCM Funding Available to Municipalities

The Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) has two new funding programs designed to help municipalities provide sustainable affordable housing and make the most of their infrastructure investments.

Sustainable Affordable Housing Initiative
FCM's new $300 million Sustainable Affordable Housing initiative will provide support to local affordable housing providers —including municipal providers, not-for-profit organizations, and housing co-operatives—to retrofit existing affordable housing, or to build new energy efficient units.

Delivered by FCM’s Green Municipal Fund ,, this new initiative will target more than 6,000 retrofitted and new housing units, cutting energy use by at least 25 per cent.

Municipal Asset Management Program (MAMP)
FCM is also launching it's Municipal Asset Management Program (MAMP) . Since 2017, MAMP funding has helped nearly 600 communities use data to make informed decisions about their infrastructure assets —from roads to water systems.

With $60 million in additional funding, the program will support hundreds more municipal projects, especially in smaller and rural communities.
2020 Golf Tournament Cancelled

Though the province has released its plan to re-open Saskatchewan, which includes the opening of golf courses and the potential for increased gathering sizes, for the safety of Municipalities of Saskatchewan members, the 32nd Annual Golf Tournament hosted by the Town of Wakaw has been  cancelled . The town was excited for golfers to golf Wakaw Lake Regional Park and also have an incredible social experience on the Wheatland Express. Unfortunately the train is not running this year.

Though the tournament has been cancelled for 2020, the Town of Wakaw will be hosting the tournament in 2021 . Municipalities are invited to join us on the greens, and the Wheatland Express, next summer

If you have any questions, please contact  Katee Galandy , Events Coordinator.
What Mental Health Resources Would Help You As An Employer?

Psychological health claims are growing in the province, employers are dealing with a pandemic, and many industries have unique mental health challenges.

WorkSafe Saskatchewan is working with Dr. Joti Samra, registered psychologist, to develop resources that will help employers in Saskatchewan implement sound psychological health and safety practices in their organizations, and they would like to hear from you.

From a psychological health and safety perspective, tell WorkSafe Saskatchewan what supports and resources would help your employees. Send your comments to: by May 20.
