Resolutions

Equal Taxation in Provincial Parks

Year: 2017

Resolution

Whereas large residences are being built in provincial parks; and

Whereas provincial park land is leased from the province and not subject to property or education taxes; and

Whereas residents of provincial parks use the same educational system as other Saskatchewan residents and take advantage of services within surrounding urban municipalities without paying their fair share;

Therefore be it resolved that the Saskatchewan Urban Municipalities Association advocate with the provincial government to ensure that provincial park residents are paying their fair share of taxes for the services they are using. 

Provincial Response

While the Minister of Finance Kevin Doherty sent a letter in response to resolutions on taxation, it does not include a direct response to this resolution.
