Minister of Finance

The Ministry of Finance leads Saskatchewan's accountability system for the Government of Saskatchewan.  Every year, research is done on best practices and guidelines are provided to assist Ministries and agencies as they improve planning, measuring and reporting practices.  Ministries follow a systematic approach of releasing plans with the budget and reporting on results achieved at the end of the year.  Finance ensures ministries meet government's expectations for thorough and accurate reporting on commitments which increases transparency and accountability to the people of Saskatchewan. 

The Government of Saskatchewan is committed to building on Saskatchewan’s foundational strengths, investing in needed infrastructure and in vital programs and services for the people of our province. The Government has made a simple yet significant commitment – to Keep Saskatchewan Strong. This year marks the beginning of a government-wide exercise of transformational change to ensure the sustainability of high quality public services delivered in the most effective, efficient way possible.
This focus will advance Government toward the realization of Saskatchewan’s Vision and goals.

Saskatchewans Vision

to be the best place in Canada to live, to work, to start a business, to get an education, to raise a family and to build a life. 

Sustaining growth and opportunities for Saskatchewan people

Meeting the challenges of growth

Securing a better quality of life for all Saskatchewan people

Delivering responsive and responsible government

Saskatchewan’s Vision and goals provide the framework for ministries, agencies and third parties to align their programs and services and meet the needs of Saskatchewan’s residents.
All ministries and agencies will report on progress in their 2016-17 annual reports.

The ministry plans align with Government's Direction, vision and goals, describe multi-year strategies and actions to support Government's priorities, and provide performance measures to gauge progress.

The plans are designed to be concise, high level frameworks for ministry activities.  They provide a basis for reporting on results, in a more extensive manner, in the annual reports.

Ministers are required by The Executive Government Administration Act to prepare and submit to the legislature annual reports for each agency that he or she is responsible.  Finance's website provides links to the plans and annual reports for executive government ministries and those Crown agencies that follow Finance's guidelines for public reporting.

The Ministry of Finance welcomes your comments and questions on the plans, reports and other information provided on this site.  Please contact Planning, Accountability and Reporting Branch at (306) 787-2572 for more information.

The Provincial Auditor of Saskatchewan undertakes assessments of government's financial and non-financial performance and provides commentary and/or recommendations in public reports.  Chapters that pertain to planning and reporting issues are included as links on this site for ease of reference.
