WHEREAS the Provincial Government and Minister Carr in particular, made it clear at the 2020 Annual Convention that the Saskatchewan Urban Municipalities Association (SUMA) was not to use the name “Municipalities of Saskatchewan” when referring to their organization, until SUMA follows the proper process and the Provincial Government changes legislation; and 

WHEREAS SUMA membership has not endorsed this use of “Municipalities of Saskatchewan”; and 

WHEREAS the continued us of the term “Municipalities of Saskatchewan” will lead to the lack of distinction between SARM and SUMA. 

BE IT RESOLVED SARM lobby the Provincial Government to put an immediate stop to this misuse of the term “Municipalities of Saskatchewan” as their legal entity.
