The Regulations Act, 1995 appoints a Registrar of Regulations and establishes general rules that govern the implementation and publication of all regulations.

Dealing with these matters in one Act removes the need to repeat them in every Act. The purpose of The Regulations Act, 1995 is to ensure a uniform interpretation of what constitutes a regulation and when it is in effect.

Regulations are laws that are created under delegated authority within an authorizing Act. The power to create regulations is commonly delegated to the Lieutenant Governor in Council.

Among the important matters dealt with in the Act are:

  • rules respecting the filing, coming into force, amendment, and repeal of regulations; and
  • rules governing the publication of regulations in The Saskatchewan Gazette and the correction of printing errors.
