Plumbing Permits & Inspections

The Technical Safety Authority of Saskatchewan (TSASK) establishes and enforces plumbing safety within the province of Saskatchewan to ensure that plumbing installations are certified, approved and comply with safety standards established under the Plumbing Act and Regulations.

The cities of Regina, Saskatoon, and Lloydminster, along with the Global Transportation Hub, have jurisdictional authority for plumbing permitting and inspections within their borders, and do not fall under TSASK’s authority. The Saskatchewan Health Authority has oversight of private sewage works.

TSASK plumbing inspectors conduct sample inspections to enforce the National Plumbing Code of Canada and associated standards related to the design, construction, and component certification of plumbing systems. A plumbing system includes sanitary drainage and venting, water distribution, rainwater removal, and fixtures utilized by the end user.
