Rules & Practice Directives

Court of Queen’s Bench


The Rules of Court govern the practices and procedures to be followed in matters that are brought before the Court. Compliance with the Rules is mandatory and it is the responsibility of lawyers or persons who represent themselves in court proceedings to know and comply with the rules that may apply to their proceeding.

Failure to comply can result in unnecessary delay and expense. It could also result in a significant disadvantage or loss in a person’s ability to pursue a claim, appeal or defence.

The Rules of Court (published in the Saskatchewan Gazette and on the Queen’s Printer website) comprise the following parts:

Practice Directives

From time to time the Court publishes Practice Directives to supplement and provide greater direction on particular processes.

With the new Court of Queen’s Bench Rules of Court coming into effect on July 1, 2013, all Practice Directives issued prior to that date have been cancelled. In their stead and concurrent with the cancellation of the former Practice Directives, new revised Practice Directives have been issued. Practice Directives issued on and after July 1, 2013, are referenced by category and number.

Some of the Practice Directives cancelled as of July 1, 2013, have not been renewed since their provisions are now addressed in the Rules of Court.

The following is a list of the Court’s current Practice Directives:
