Saskatchewan Justice

The Enforcement of Foreign Judgements Act establishes rules for recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments. The Act establishes that where a foreign court has a "real and substantial" connection to the subject matter for which the judgment was issued, that judgment may be registered in Saskatchewan and subsequently enforced as a Saskatchewan judgment.  

Foreign judgments will be recognized in Saskatchewan if they meet the recognition criteria set out in the Act. Where a foreign judgment includes a financial award that exceeds that which would have been granted in a similar judgment in Saskatchewan, an application can be made to have that judgment enforced only to the extent that a similar Saskatchewan judgment would have been awarded.
