Frequently Asked Questions

Mobile Outdoor Food Service Units

I’m a new food truck owner, do I need a new permit to operate in Saskatchewan?

If the food truck is new to the province or has never been previously inspected in Saskatchewan, you will need to hire a Licensed Gas Contractor who will apply for a permit. 

If the food truck is new to you but has been inspected in Saskatchewan previously, you do not require a new permit. Your local municipality may require a re-certification, contact them for specific requirements.
 

How do I know if my food truck was previously inspected and certified?

Contact TSASK to confirm if the food truck has been previously inspected, you will need to provide the Vehicle Identification Number.

If TSASK has previously inspected the food truck, a sticker with the date the inspection was passed should be located on the unit.
