Ministry Plan and Annual Report
2012-2013 Annual Report
Statement from the Minister
Honourable Gordon Wyant Q.C.
The Ministry of Justice is committed to ensuring Saskatchewan is a safe and secure place to live, work and raise families. The people of Saskatchewan can rest assured that the Ministry is dedicated to being accountable, honouring its commitments, and responsibly managing its assets and expenditures.
As a result of government reorganization in 2012, the Corrections and Policing divisions of the former Ministry of Corrections, Public Safety and Policing were added to the Ministry of Justice. We are confident this change will enhance our ability to work in collaboration with other government ministries and community partners to achieve our objectives of justice, fairness and accountability to the people of Saskatchewan.
Over the last year, the Ministry invested $450,000 into Community Mobilization Prince Albert, a project focused on creating coordinated approaches to addressing the root causes of crime and victimization in Prince Albert.
Also this fiscal year, the Saskatchewan Financial Services Commission completed its transition to a Treasury Board Crown Corporation under its new title, the Financial and Consumer Affairs Authority. This change will improve the organization’s ability to respond to emerging business and consumer issues on behalf of the government.
The 2012-13 annual report represents our progress to the Legislature and to the people of Saskatchewan, and is an important accountability measure that can assist the Ministry’s plans for the future.
