In Saskatchewan the age of majority is 18.

Under The Age of Majority Act, every person who becomes 18 years of age is considered to be of full legal age (i.e., an adult) with the accompanying rights and responsibilities.

For example, persons who reach the age of majority have the right to make a will, buy and dispose of property, or marry without the consent of their parent or guardian.

They are also considered old enough to be held responsible for their actions. For example, they may be sued or charged with an offence if they violate any law of Canada.

It is important to note that certain legislation may override the provisions of The Age of Majority Act in specific instances. For example, under The Alcohol and Gaming Regulation Act, 1997 an individual is considered a minor until they have reached the age of 19.
