    There is a "search" function @ upper right. I've toyed around with variations of "metal" and "detectors" and "detecting", and see nothing at all in your city code that says "No md'ing". You're welcome to comb through it further, but .... looks like your city is silent on the subject. And if it's not prohibited, then .... it's not dis-allowed.

    I would just avoid obvious historic sensitive monuments. Don't be in the middle of deep retrievals when busy-bodies are watching, etc....

    The only "restriction" rule is this: You must send me 30% of all your finds. I accept paypal. Now go find some cool stuff !

    A few pointers

    Hi. I've been detecting is Saskatoon since 2015.
    There are a handful of dedicated hobbyists hitting the parks and public spaces.
    A few have been making a mess and leaving open and or badly damaging holes
    in public parks and spaces city-wide in their efforts to dominate the areas. Sadly it may
    end up ruining our open permission policy in Saskatoon. The University of Sask.
    has already closed to all detecting after some damage was being done to their campus.
    Please research methods that will ensure the least amount of damage and leave the spaces
    you detect looking clean and as untouched as possible when you leave.

    Best of luck, and I hope you enjoy the hobby.... Happy Hunting.

    I did not know that the campus closed detecting. For the last two years I saw, took pictures of, posted them, tried to fill them back in etc. As recently as two weeks ago I found a big hole open in Buena Vista. I finally ran into the primary individual that was ripping the city apart. His name was Reggie. He used to work at the regional psych. He was unemployed and basically commercial digged to sell finds on Ebay. I tried to get him to be more responsible with his holes and I'm not sure if my efforts where ever successful. Last fall he moved to B.C. to hunt for placer gold. I would advise to avoid making statements based on ignorance or personal bias and painting individuals with the same brush. Some of us have been in the hobby before any of these "handful of dedicated hobbyists", and although not perfect, or leave the odd scruffy plug by accidentally screwing it up, overall try very hard to be conscientious and ethical re the hobby.
