Consumer Protection - Changes to the Saskatchewan Film Classification Act and Regulations

July 3, 2018 - The Saskatchewan Film Classification Act and Regulations recently underwent changes to streamline the administration of film classification.  This resulted in The Film and Video Classification Act, 2016 which was proclaimed in force on July 1, 2018 (see the pronouncement for the enactment of The Film and Video Classification Act, 2016 and Regulations, 2018).

With its introduction, the amendments:

  • Change the classification mechanism for films from classification by a board to classification by a Director of Film Classification and/or by delegates of the Director; 
  • Allow for temporary classifications in certain circumstances;
  • Provide that appeals be made to the Financial and Consumer Affairs Authority (FCAA); 
  • Allow for continuous registration by distributors/exhibitors upon providing an annual return; and 
  • Update the criteria for “disapproving” a film or a portion of a film, in order to conform to the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
