Financing the public education system in Saskatchewan is a shared responsibility between the provincial government and boards of education.

  • The government provides funding from general revenues that is distributed to boards of education; and 
  • Municipalities collect education property tax from property owners, based on tax rates that are set by government and remit the tax to boards of education.

For general information on local assessment and taxation please refer to Ministry of Municipal Affairs at http://www.municipal.gov.sk.ca .
