How can you help us?
- Proof of ownership or authorization from the owner along with a complete legal description and civic address of the property is required. For information obtained by a third party, there is a release authorization form available at the Planning and Building receptionist desk. If the customer owns the property, a tax notice and/or personal identification is required as proof of ownership. Legal descriptions may be obtained from the Assessor's Office, and tax notices may be obtained from the Revenue Collecting and Licensing Division.
- Civic address(es) can be confirmed through Planning and Building at 306-975-2645.
NOTE: Not ALL building plans are available at Building Standards.
Address changes may need to be done for a variety of reasons. Usually, owner initiated requests are made due to orientation of a building on a corner lot or an inconsistency in the current address. However, 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 the case of the City initiating a change of address, the following steps will be followed.
- 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.
