Saskatchewan raises small claims to $50K

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.
