On April 1, 2024, Saskatchewan will raise its small claims court monetary limit from $30,000 to $50,000.
The limit is the second highest in Canada. Alberta increased its limit to $100,000 on Aug. 1.
“Pursuing matters through Provincial Court provides a more user-friendly, cost-effective way to resolve matters, often without the need for a litigant to hire a lawyer,” Justice Minister and Attorney General Bronwyn Eyre said. “Provincial Courts also operate in more communities across the province, so applicants have increased options for filing their claim, which reduces travel.”
The small claims limit was last increased in 2016.
