Change to Saskatchewan Provincial Sales Tax


On February 26, 2018, the Saskatchewan government announced they are rescinding the 6% provincial sales tax (PST) that was introduced on life, health, disability, accident and sickness insurance premiums in 2017. The change is retroactive.

As a result, all PST collected on applicable CDSPI premiums will be refunded.


CDSPI will be processing all applicable refunds in the following way:

  • Monthly or quarterly premiums
    If you pay your premiums monthly or quarterly you will receive your refund as a credit on your July invoice.
  • Annual premiums or cancelled clients
    If you pay your premiums annually or if you have cancelled your coverage, we will mail a refund cheque to your current address in our system.


The following CDSPI plans are affected by this change:

  • Basic Life
  • Family Life
  • Term 100
  • Accidental Death and Dismemberment
  • DisabilityGuard™
  • Long Term Disability
  • Office Overhead Expense insurance
  • Hospital Cash
  • Dental Office Staff Insurance
  • Critical Illness
