A Property Information Disclosure (PID) report contains historical property information pertaining to civic addresses in Saskatoon. Anyone can apply and receive a PID report for a fee. Fees are charged per civic address searched. A PID is commonly requested by realtors, homeowners, purchasers, or lawyers during a purchase or sale of a property. A PID report provides information relating to:

  • Building and plumbing permit history

  • Outstanding fire orders
  • Heritage and zoning designations

If an update to the report is required a new PID request must be submitted and the fee paid.

Address Changes

Address changes occur for a variety of reasons. Most common requests are owner initiated. The City of Saskatoon may also impose an address change due to an irregularity in the current addressing system, conflicting address, or a street name change.

Who can request a change of address?

Property owners and developers may request a change of address. The City of Saskatoon may initiate or impose a change of address.

In order to file an application for a Civic Address Change, a property owner may:

By mail:

  1. Complete the request for change of address application form. (NOTE: There must be a separate application for each individual property and/or unit).
  2. Include a cheque or money order for the $20.00 application fee, payable to the City of Saskatoon.

Once an application form and payment is received, Building Standards staff will:

  • Send letters to all civic departments and utility companies advising them of the change and the effective date;
  • In the letter to the owner, advise them of the bylaw requirements for numbering of buildings and note that all correspondence and records must be adjusted.

Request For Change Of Address Initiated By The City

In the case of the City initiating a change of address, the following steps will be followed.

  1. Building Standards would send a registered letter to the owner of the property advising that an address change is necessary and co-ordinate with the owner the details of the change. (i.e., effective date, owners and City's responsibilities, etc.) In this letter, the City would also advise of bylaw requirements and reasons the change is necessary.
  2. Building Standards would also send letters to all civic departments and utility companies advising them of the change and the effective date.

NOTE: The fee associated with an address change is not applicable in this case.
