Saskatchewan Justice

In any civil proceeding by the Crown or to which the Crown is a party, before any court in Saskatchewan, The Crown Suits (Costs) Act requires the court to apply the same principles to both sides in the case as are applied in any other case when deciding whether, and on what basis, to award court costs.

When costs are awarded to the Crown, the same remedies apply when enforcing payment as in any other case. But when costs are awarded to a party against the Crown, that party must obtain a certificate of taxation from the taxing officer of the court and forward it to the Minister of Finance who will pay the costs.

This Act does not apply to proceedings against the Crown under The Proceedings Against the Crown Act.
