Urban Municipal Administrators Association of Saskatchewan (UMAAS)

The Urban Municipal Administrators Association of Saskatchewan (UMAAS) began in the mid-1950’s with the unanimous support of the Saskatchewan Urban Municipalities Association (SUMA). The Association along with the Provincial Government establishes standards and examinations to increase members’ proficiency, knowledge and skill with respect to the performance of their professional duties.

They also have established an educational program for persons who apply for membership in the Association.

The UMAAS of today is faced with a challenging and increasingly complex field. The Association is confident that these challenges will be met as effectively today as they have in the past.

2023 UMAAS Salary Survey

UMAAS Members,

It is time again to undertake a comprehensive salary survey to assist in updating the UMAAS Salary Guideline for 2024. The last survey was conducted in 2020.

The information gathered in the UMAAS Salary Survey is the basis for updating the salary categories and ranges. In addition to the survey information, we will also look at salary information from fraternal organizations and national and provincial data.

Please note that we are asking for this information to be submitted by September 30th. We will need time to sift through the information and provide a recommendation to the UMAAS Executive. The goal is to have an approved UMAAS Salary Guideline in place for upcoming wage and salary negotiations with your respective Councils.

Thank you in advance for providing the important information regarding administrator salaries and wages. If you have any questions, please contact my office.
