The province is looking to make nearly $9 million in 2017-18 by increasing a laundry list of fees and charges.
The provincial government hopes the changes will add about $8.7 million to the General Revenue Fund.
More than $2 million will come from an increase in hunting and trapping licence fees.
The province’s 200,000 or so hunters and trappers will be paying $10 more for licences.
Another $850,000 is expected to come from increases to fishing licences.
Single day licences are going up $3, three-day licences up by $4 and annual licences will cost an extra $8.
People can also expect to pay more for vital event certificates. Fees for certificates from EHealth will increase anywhere from $5 to $15, bringing in an estimated $785,000 for the province.
People requesting school transcripts, including those for adult basic education, will also have to pay more, as the fee for transcripts is increasing to $20 from $15.

Hunters, trappers and anglers aren’t the only ones targeted by fee increases.
Audit assessments for mineral and oil and gas producers will be subject to a 10 per cent fee, which the province expects will generate $4.5 million in additional revenue.
It’ll also cost more to apply to bring in skilled workers.
Companies applying to hire workers under the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program’s Express Entry Program or Occupations in Demand Program will have to pay a non-refundable fee of $300.
The province expects the change will bring in an extra $1.1 million.
Personal care homes, credit unions and payday lenders will also see additional fees and charges.
All changes take effect April 1, 2017.
