On the Legislative Building Grounds

The use of the exterior of the Saskatchewan Legislative Building and the legislative grounds is coordinated by the Ministry of Central Services and the Wascana Centre Authority.

Demonstrating groups may set up their own sound system with prior approval. Organizers are responsible for any damage and for cleaning up the area after a demonstration. At the discretion of the Sergeant-at-Arms, protestors may use building facilities such as washrooms and the cafeteria within the hours that the building is open, provided they conduct themselves in an orderly manner.

 

Inside the Saskatchewan Legislative Building

Demonstrations are not permitted within the Legislative Building. No placards, megaphones, or anything that might be used as part of a demonstration may be brought into the building. There will be no unauthorized occupancy of the building. 

The Sergeant-at-Arms and security staff may meet with the leader(s) of a demonstrating group to explain the building demonstration policy, negotiate, establish their purpose, and ask to whom they may wish to speak. Elected members, building staff, or other officials may be contacted and arrangements may be made for them to meet with a small representative group of the protestors either within or outside the Legislative Building if they wish to do so.

Security staff may provide telephone numbers of MLAs or other officials the group wishes to contact. All government telephone numbers are available at www.gtds.gov.sk.ca.

When the Assembly is in session, demonstrators may be permitted, at the discretion of the Sergeant-at-Arms, to watch the proceedings from one of the public galleries so long as they observe the rules of the Assembly
