Although not everyone has received their government affordability tax credit cheque yet, there is a push in the City of Saskatoon to have people donate them to charities.
In August 2022, Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe promised small financial relief to the province to help Saskatchewan people with the rising costs of resources.
“This fall, we will be sending a $500 affordability tax credit cheque to everyone in Saskatchewan aged 18 and older,” Moe said. “Higher resource prices are driving our economy and they are creating thousands of new jobs.
“This has greatly improved our budget position from a deficit to a surplus. And that’s good news. But it also means the cost of almost everything that you buy has gone up.”
