Saskatchewan Justice

The Notaries Public Act authorizes notaries public to:

  • prepare certain commercial documents;
  • administer oaths;
  • take or receive affidavits, declarations and affirmations; and
  • perform all other tasks historically associated with notaries public.

A person who wishes to be appointed as a notary public must be at least 18 years of age, a Canadian citizen or British subject, and a resident of Saskatchewan. The applicant must complete the required application form and pay the prescribed fee. All appointments are made by the Minister of Justice and are for five-year terms.

Every lawyer who is a member in good standing of the Law Society of Saskatchewan is a notary public.

An appointment as a notary public may be revoked when the person has been found guilty of misrepresentation, fraud, or an offence against the Act or has made a material misstatement in his or her application for appointment.
