Province Launches Surface Rights Review
The Government of Saskatchewan launched a public review of surface rights legislation on Wednesday.
The legislation has remained largley unchanged since it was first introduced in 1968.
“It’s the legislation which governs the relationship between property right holders, those who hold the surface rights and those who hold the mineral rights, and how the two interact and when there is disputes, how those disputes can be handled in the most efficient and effective manner for both parties,” said Energy and Resources Minister Tim McMillan. “I think in general any legislation need review on an occasional basis to make sure that the language is current and that it is doing the job it is suppose to.”
McMillan added that you can visit the website economy.gov.sk.ca/surfacerightsreview to participate, or you can e-mail comments to email@example.com and also call 306-787-5727.
