Moving to Saskatchewan:
Vehicle Insurance and Driver’s License
Saskatchewan Vehicle Registration
Saskatchewan operates a mandatory vehicle registration and insurance program. When a vehicle owner purchases license plates, they also purchase a basic package of insurance, which includes coverage for damage to their own vehicle subject to a $700 deductible. Check out www.sgi.sk.ca for more info.
Saskatchewan Driver’s License, New Residents
New residents wishing to drive in Saskatchewan must obtain a Saskatchewan driver’s license within 90 days of moving into province, or upon expiry of their out-of-province license — whichever comes first. Check with your previous jurisdiction as they may have some restrictions that supersede this requirement.
Saskatchewan Government Insurance (SGI) is the principal vehicle insurer in Saskatchewan. All vehicles previously licensed in another jurisdiction must pass a mandatory vehicle inspection. Please see www.sgi.sk.ca for more info. It is recommended that you obtain a driver’s abstract and a claims free letter from your current insurance company prior to your arrival in Saskatchewan (this may qualify you for a discount). For more information, please contact the SGI Call Centre toll free in Saskatchewan at 1.800.667.9868.
SGI services are located at 107 4th Avenue N.W. Moose Jaw. For more information regarding hours of operation etc., please contact them directly at 306.691.4570.

Health Insurance/Health Card
For forms call 1.800.667.7551 or download from www.health.gov.sk.ca.
Saskatchewan Health Benefits will be provided on the first day of the third calendar month following the date you moved to Saskatchewan. You will have no interruption in health benefits as your previous province will cover you until your Saskatchewan benefits take effect with the exception of Quebec residents, see next.
Quebec Exception: Saskatchewan Health Benefits will be provided on the first day of the third calendar month following the date you moved to Saskatchewan. Quebec Health will provide coverage until your Saskatchewan Health goes into effect (some limitations apply). Quebec Health encourages residents to notify their office when they will be moving outside the province. Should you need to access medical services prior to receiving your Saskatchewan Health, you may have to submit cash payment to a medical clinic for the service provided. You will then be required to complete the necessary documentation to receive reimbursement from Quebec Health. *Note: You will only get reimbursed at Quebec rates for the same service. If you seek medical assistance from an Emergency Room in a Hospital they will accept your Quebec Health card and seek direct payment from Quebec Health (without seeking cash payment for services). You may be required to reimburse the hospital any amount that exceeds the Quebec rate for the services provided.
