Dealing with a Death
Trying to cope with all the administrative details and paperwork during an already difficult time can be overwhelming. We hope these links will help.
PROGRAMS AND SERVICES
A death certificate is required as legal proof of the death to settle an estate or to receive entitlements for benefits such as pensions and insurance.
Every death in Saskatchewan must be registered with Vital Statistics. Registration is necessary to establish the legality of the death. Without registration you cannot obtain a death certificate.
The Office of the Public Guardian and Trustee is responsible for protecting the interests of vulnerable people.
