From Sherwood Forest to Saskatchewan: The role of the sheriff in a redesigned judgment enforcement system

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • The sheriff plays a central role in the judgment enforcement system of Saskatchewan and other provinces. The modem sheriff's office is the product of more than a thousand years of English and Canadian history and a century of unsystematic statutory tinkering with the enforcement writs. This article identifies the issues to be addressed in redesigning that office as the administrative core of a new system of judgment enforcement law, and considers alternative approaches to their resolution. By way of context, the author outlines the sheriff's present role in the enforcement of money judgments and surveys the history of the office.
