You will need to obtain a building permit to build an uncovered deck on your home if the deck is over 30 cm high or bigger than 3 m2. Landings or front steps under 32 sq ft in size do not require a permit. (Note: Covered decks/sunrooms are considered an addition for permit processing.)
Regardless of size or height, you must ensure your proposed deck does not encroach upon any easements registered against your property. To identify easements, contact Information Services Corporation of Saskatchewan (sometimes referred to as Land Titles Office).
View Deck Package to ensure your application contains all required information and documents. A completed Residential Permit Fee Calculation Form is required as part of the application. If you need assistance with this form, call 306-777-7000. The building permit application must be signed by the legal owner of the property as well as the applicant. Incomplete submissions will not be accepted.
