Welcome to the 2022 SUMA Convention and Tradeshow

The Saskatchewan Public Safety Agency (SPSA) is a Treasury Board Crown corporation created in November 2017 to streamline public safety services in Saskatchewan. Becoming operational in the fall of 2019, it provides greater co-ordination of Saskatchewan’s emergency and wildfire responses.

The Agency’s mandate is to provide or support public safety services for and with the people, municipalities, Indigenous people, public safety service providers and the Government of Saskatchewan. Its programs and services now include Emergency Crisis Support (formerly Emergency Social Services), Sask911, SaskAlert, the Civic Address Registry, wildfire management, emergency management and fire safety.

The SPSA is home to Saskatchewan’s Fire Commissioner and is responsible for providing support to local fire departments, establishing standards and training, ensuring compliance with the National Fire Code and designating inspectors as Peace Officers when required.  

The SPSA works in partnership with municipalities and First Nations communities to build the resilience and capacity for local communities.
