Events, Rentals and Permits

While Wascana Centre is open for the use and enjoyment of the general public, some activities are restricted by the Provincial Capital Commission. The Commission’s bylaws list those activities that are regulated by the Commission and for which a permit is required (bylaws). To apply for a permit, please complete application. Please note a permit fee may be required as part of your application (fee schedule). Fees are non-refundable. 

A permit for activities requiring the exclusive use of all or a portion of Wascana Centre may be deemed a Special Event and subject to the Commission’s special event’s fee. If you are in doubt if a permit is required, or what type of permit is required, please contact us for more information.

The Commission is committed to accessibility. If you need help with this information or the application form, please contact us at 306-522-3661.
