Land Registry

The primary objective of the Land Registry is to provide clarity and certainty about ownership of land in Saskatchewan. It does this by recording documents such as land transfers or mortgages that meet legal requirements for registration. It also issues titles guaranteed by the Province for every parcel of land in the Registry based on those registrations. The Land Registry may be searched by anyone.

The Controller of Surveys oversees approval and filing of all survey plans within the province. The Controller is responsible for the establishment, maintenance and preservation of the land survey systems and the cadastral parcel mapping system for the province or geographical information system (GIS). The Land Surveys Directory may be searched by anyone.

It is typically used by financial institutions to give notice that they have a claim to, or security in, a specific piece or pieces of property. A car loan or inventory financing granted to a retail business are examples of interests that are registered in the PPR. Other claims or charges against personal property such as judgments and parking fines are also registered and can be searched in the PPR.
