Saskatchewan to suspend eviction hearings over spread of COVID-19

The government says that starting immediately the Office of Residential Tenancies will not accept applications for missed or late rent.
It says the office will only hold eviction hearings for urgent matters where health or safety is at risk.
Minister of Labour Relations and Workplace Safety Don Morgan says tenants should be able to stay at home as public health officials have advised without fear of eviction.
The government says tenants who are unable to pay their rent during the province’s state of emergency will be expected to pay once it’s lifted.
