Proposed changes to the Saskatchewan Human Rights Code would end mandatory retirement for those aged 65 and older.

"This legislation recognizes that our older citizens can continue to make meaningful contributions in the work force," said Justice Minister Frank Quennell.

"It also recognizes that senior, experienced employees are a valuable resource, especially in work environments where labour shortages are a current or future concern."
