Filing a Property Owner Application for a Civic Address Change

In order to file an application for a Civic Address Change, a property owner may:

By mail:

  1. Complete the request for change of address application form. (NOTE: There must be a separate application for each individual property and/or unit).
  2. Include a cheque or money order for the $55.00 application fee, payable to the City of Saskatoon.
  3. Submit application, application fee and any appropriate supporting materials to Building Standards, 222-3rd Avenue North, Saskatoon, SK S7K 0J5.

In person:

  2. Submit the application form and $55.00 application fee at Building Standards on the 3rd Floor of City Hall at 222-3rd Avenue North, Saskatoon.

Once an application form and payment is received, Building Standards staff will:

  • Send letters to all civic departments and utility companies advising them of the change and the effective date;
  • In the letter to the owner, advise them of the bylaw requirements for numbering of buildings and note that all correspondence and records must be adjusted.

Request For Change of Address Initiated by the City

In the case of the City initiating a change of address, the following steps will be followed.

  1. 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.
  2. Building Standards would also send letters to all civic departments and utility companies advising them of the change and the effective date.

NOTE: The fee associated with an address change is not applicable in this case.
