2014-2017 Funding and Budget Plan

(February 2014)


SAMA is planning to implement an update to its budget and funding structure that will see changes to how the assessment system in Saskatchewan is supported. This modernization will help to provide a stable financial foundation for property assessments, for the kindergarten to grade 12 education system, and for our municipal clients to pay for municipal services like police, fire, road maintenance, water, parks, recreation, libraries, and many other services.


SAMA's current revenue sources for assessment services are reflected in an overall contribution split of 63:37 between the Provincial government and municipalities. This formula will be transitioned to a 60:40 split over the next two years, a phase-in period over 2014 and 2015, leveling off in 2016.


With the province's rapidly growing economy, the Agency's inspection program has met with challenges. In order to address these challenges, SAMA is undertaking a four-year capital project for new technology. Paper-based systems and manual data collection methods will be modernized through technological improvements to increase our level of services to our clients. During the 2014-2017 period, the Province and SAMA's client municipalities will be contributing to a technology upgrade capital funding levy.


In addition, in response stakeholder feedback, SAMA will be implementing a $20 fee-for-service charge for all maintenance inspections requested by municipalities beginning in 2015.


Detailed information on these changes is available by reviewing:
