Guidelines for Residency

GUIDELINES FOR RESIDENCY - AUTHORS

The Saskatchewan Book Awards generally follows the rules respecting "ordinary residency" outlined in The Saskatchewan Election Act, 1996 (section 18) and The Local Government Election Act (section 3), with suitable modifications for the residency time limits and other requirements of the SBA.

  1. Ordinary residence -- An individual's ordinary residence is the place where the individual has his or her established habitation and to which he or she intends to return.
  2. Temporary absence -- An individual does not lose his or her ordinary residence by reason of temporary absence from his or her established habitation.
  3. Students studying outside Saskatchewan -- If an individual has left his or her place of residence in Saskatchewan to study at an educational institution outside Saskatchewan, the individual is deemed to be ordinarily resident in the place in which he or she was resident immediately before leaving Saskatchewan and is deemed to continue to have that ordinary residence until he or she completes or abandons his or her studies.
  4. Students studying in Regina or Saskatoon -- If an individual has left his or her place of residence in Saskatchewan to study at an educational institution in Saskatchewan, the individual is deemed to be ordinarily resident in the two following places:
    1. in the place in which he or she was residing immediately before leaving to pursue his or her studies, and the individual is deemed to continue to have that ordinary residence until he or she completes or abandons his or her studies;
    2. in the place to which he or she has moved for the purpose of pursuing his or her studies and in which he or she was residing on the day on which the title was published. The student must have been studying in Regina or Saskatoon for the last twelve months, or four of the previous five years.
  5. Students from elsewhere in Canada who are studying in Saskatchewan -- If an individual has left his or her residence in another province to study at an educational institution in Saskatchewan, the individual is deemed to have acquired an ordinary residence in Saskatchewan for the duration of his or her studies. The student must have been studying in Saskatchewan for the last twelve months, or four of the previous five years.

PROOF OF RESIDENCY

If the Saskatchewan Book Awards has reason to query the residency of an author (for example, because of information about an author on the book's cover or in the book itself), the SBA may require proof of residency similar to the proof required for Saskatchewan elections.

The SBA may require the author to produce a document bearing the name and ordinary place of residence of the author, such as a:

  • Municipal property tax bill;
  • Mortgage document;
  • Book of cheques bearing the author's residential address;
  • Letter from a major corporation such as a bank or trust company, or a utility bill (power, gas, telephone, water, cable, etc.)
