There is no legal age of consent in Saskatchewan. Children 13 to 17 years of age (mature minors) have the authority to give, refuse, or revoke consent for their own immunizations when the health care provider assesses they have demonstrated capacity to make that decision. It is preferable that parent(s) provide consent up to the age of 16.
Consent Process below 12 years:
All biological and adoptive parents have the authority to give, refuse and revoke informed consent for their children’s immunizations, except when their decision-making rights have been legally revoked and another legal guardian has been appointed (e.g., social worker) or when their child has self-consented as a mature minor.
