Saskatchewan Tax Loss
This program provides grant payments to the Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipalities (SARM) and the the Province of Saskatchewan, Ministry of Education to address tax loss compensation for affected rural municipalities (RM’s) and school divisions related to the conversion of lands to reserve status as provided in the Treaty Land Entitlement (TLA) Framework agreements. The program also provides for the payment of property taxes in the event Canada fails to meet the 75 day service standard for reserve creation identified in the TLE Framework Agreement (TLEFA).
