Rural Municipalities are a defined territory incorporated under The Municipalities ActThese municipalities may include hamlets which may or may not be organized (see below). A rural municipality is governed by an elected council that can hire staff to manage daily administration and maintain municipal services (e.g. roads, utilities, recreation facilities).

A municipal council has the power to adopt bylaws to:

  • provide for the health and safety of the municipality’s residents;
  • decide what type and level of municipal services will be provided;
  • control land development and zoning provisions;
  • borrow money for municipal improvements; and
  • set local tax policies and rates to cover the costs of municipal services.

Saskatchewan’s Rural municipalities are governed by the provincial legislation set out in the The Municipalities Act.
