The Law Reform Commission of Saskatchewan was established by An Act to Establish a Law Reform
Commission, proclaimed in force in November, 1973, and began functioning in February of 1974.
The Commission is incorporated by an Act of the Saskatchewan Legislature. Commissioners are appointed by Order in
Council. Its recommendations are independent, and are submitted to the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Saskatchewan for consideration.
Projects are initiated by the Commission in
response to suggestions from the public and the legal community, or at
the request of the Minister of Justice and Attorney General. After preliminary
research, the Commission usually issues background or consultation
papers to facilitate consultation. Tentative Proposals may be issued if
the legal issues involved in a project are complex. Upon completion of
a project, the Commission's recommendations are formally submitted to
the Minister of Justice and Attorney General as final Proposals.
At present, the Commission is funded by
grants from the Law Foundation of Saskatchewan and the Ministry of
Justice and Attorney General.
The Commissioners are:
(Ms.) Reché J. McKeague is Director of Research
