The Law Reform Commission of Saskatchewan was established by An Act to Establish a Law Reform Commission (proclaimed in force in November 1973) and began functioning in February 1974.

The Commission is incorporated by an Act of the Saskatchewan Legislature. Commissioners are appointed by Order in Council. The Commission’s recommendations are independent and are submitted to the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Saskatchewan for consideration. Projects are initiated by the Commission in response to suggestions from the public and the legal community, or at the request of the Minister of Justice and Attorney General. After preliminary research, the Commission usually issues a background or consultation paper to facilitate consultation. Tentative Proposals may be issued if the legal issues involved in a project are complex. Upon completion of a project, the Commission’s recommendations are formally submitted to the Minister of Justice and Attorney General as final proposals.

The Law Reform Commission of Saskatchewan is interested in your response to the Class Actions Consultation Report (available on the Commission's website: https://lawreformcommission.sk.ca/publications/).

Your comments and opinions on the topic are welcome and are an important part of the Commission’s deliberation on recommendations for law reform.  Please allow the following questions to guide you in your response:

1.      Is The Class Actions Act furthering the three objectives of class actions: (1) access to justice, (2) judicial economy, and (3) behaviour modification?

2.      Is The Class Actions Act in need of reform to better reflect current class actions practice and procedure?

The consultation period on this project closes on February 28, 2022.
