Housing and Rental Issues


Ombudsman Saskatchewan has jurisdiction over provincial housing authorities and some aspects of the Office of Residential Tenancies. Complaints about these organizations should be directed to them first. If you think their response is unfair, you are welcome to contact us.

If your landlord is not a provincial housing authority, then your landlord is outside our jurisdiction. However, if you have not been able to resolve an issue with your landlord and you have taken it to the Office of Residential Tenancies - and you think they did not deal with the matter fairly, you are welcome to contact us. We can listen to your concerns and determine whether there is a role for our Office.

There is also information about renting on the Government of Saskatchewan’s Renting and Leasing web page.

Home Purchases and Mortgages

Ombudsman Saskatchewan does not have jurisdiction over credit unions, banks or realtors.

Some banking services and investment firms have their own ombudsman, while others use the Ombudsman for Banking Services and Investments.
