The federal government has recently updated the Child Support Guidelines Tables. The new Tables are available at: http://www.justice.gc.ca/eng/fl-df/child-enfant/cst-orpe.html
The amendments were published in Part II of the Canada Gazette on November 1st, and will come into effect on November 22, 2017. As Saskatchewan has adopted the federal Child Support Guidelines (see The Family Maintenance Act, 1997 and The Family Maintenance Regulations, 1998) the amendments automatically came into force in Saskatchewan without any change to provincial legislation.
