Trying to find middle ground between rural land owners and the public, the Government of Saskatchewan is taking a look at current trespassing legislation. 

It's been a topic that has returned to conversations often, especially in the last year, with questions concerning what laws need to be in place to protect a land owners' rights when people are attempting to enter their properties.

The Ministry of Justice has compiled information and released a questionnaire to the public asking for their opinion on the topic. More specifically, questions include whether all residents need prior consent to enter someone's land, and if consent is required, how the granting or denying of access should be carried out. 

Officials also noted that there are varying rules and regulations for a number of acts currently within legislation such as The Trespass to Property Act, The Wildlife Act, 1998, The All-Terrain Vehicles Act, The Snowmobile Act and The Provincial Lands Regulations.

"The Government of Saskatchewan is reviewing trespass related legislation in Saskatchewan to determine if changes are needed to address the appropriate balance between rural land owners and members of the public. Land owners are facing many issues, one of which is the increasing need to prevent and minimize the impact of crop diseases and noxious weeds that can be inadvertently spread by visitors," said Justice Minister Don Morgan. "Responses to the questionnaire on the government website are requested between August 10 to October 1, 2018. Stakeholder groups that could be impacted the most by potential changes to legislation were notified of the questionnaire to provide them with the opportunity to offer comment and discuss with their members as they deemed appropriate."

All submissions of a person's opinion on the trespassing legislation need to be completed and delivered to the government by October 1st.
