The Legislative Assembly determines the new Saskatchewan provincial constituency boundaries. It does so, based on the recommendation of the Saskatchewan Constituency Boundaries Commission.
The Constituency Boundaries Commission is composed of three members.
- The Lieutenant Governor in Council shall appoint as chairperson one of the following persons nominated by the Chief Justice of Saskatchewan:
(a) a judge of the Court of Appeal nominated by the Chief Justice of Saskatchewan; or
(b) a judge of Her Majesty’s Court of Queen’s Bench for Saskatchewan nominated by the Chief Justice of Saskatchewan after consultation with the Chief Justice of Her Majesty’s Court of Queen’s Bench for Saskatchewan; or
(c) a resident of Saskatchewan.
- After consultation with the leader of the opposition the Lieutenant Governor in Council shall appoint two persons as the members who:
(a) are residents of Saskatchewan; and
(b) are not member of the Senate, a member of the House of Commons or a member of the Legislative Assembly.
As part of the redistribution process, boundaries commissions consult with the public via public hearings. The commissions will consider this input but retain the right to make all final decisions about the new constituency boundaries.
