The Saskatchewan Assessment Management Agency (SAMA) revalues property every four years, and the year on which the assessments are determined is called the “base date.” SAMA uses a system that calculates the value based on long-term values and avoids taking into account short-term market fluctuations, and thus their assessment may be different from the market prices which are immediate and based on fluctuating market conditions.
