 COVID-19 Response for Saskatoon Residents

On March 19, 2020, the City decided to close public access to City Hall and all City buildings, including fire stations, leisure facilities, attractions and Saskatoon Public Library locations. While we are closed to the public, our business operations continue to ensure core services for our residents as much as possible. Public transit currently remains operational.

Asbestos Awareness

Asbestos is regulated by several federal and provincial laws. Current federal controls focus on mining, high-risk consumer products and federal workplace exposure. In Saskatchewan, asbestos in the workplace is regulated by the Ministry of Labour Relations and WorkPlace Safety, Occupational Health & Safety Division.

Building Permit and Asbestos

As of March 1, 2015, prior to the issuance of a building permit for the demolition, alteration or renovation of a building, an Asbestos Removal Notification form must be completed for any building constructed prior to 1990.

Saskatoon Landfill and Asbestos

Friable waste asbestos material can be disposed only at landfills approved by the Ministry of Environment. The City Landfill does not accept asbestos.
