Saskatchewan Justice

The Reciprocal Enforcement of Judgments Act, 1996 provides that any judgment from another Canadian jurisdiction can be registered and enforced in Saskatchewan.

The Court of Queen's Bench is authorized to hear applications for registration of a judgment given by a court of any province or territory of Canada.

The Act applies to civil money judgments made by a court, including arbitration awards.

A Saskatchewan court shall refuse or set aside registration of a judgment if:

  • the original court acted without jurisdiction;
  • the judgment was obtained by fraud;
  • enforcement of the judgment would be contrary to public policy;
  • the defendant was not properly served with notice by the original court, did not submit to the jurisdiction of the original court, or is appealing the judgment.
