As of June 27, 2018, every contractor on Saskatoon Land’s Eligible Contractor list is required to complete mandatory training and safety education. All new probationary applications must complete at least one of the mandatory training courses or the safety course before being allowed to purchase their first lot.
Many of Saskatoon Land’s lots are sold directly to home builders. To encourage safety, quality and lasting value for investors and families, Saskatoon Land requires all home builders to meet the specific criteria, including:
The mandatory training helps ensure home builders meet a standard in business management and new home construction knowledge, and are committed to constructing quality homes in Saskatoon Land developments. Together, these criteria encourage a high level of professionalism in the residential home building industry, providing home buyers with an excellent choice of home builders.
While other equivalent courses may be approved by Saskatoon Land, the following seven courses provided by the SRHBA have been pre-approved by Saskatoon Land to meet the eligible contractor criteria.
