Farm Safety Program

The Farm Safety Program provides funding for organizations to promote awareness of farm safety issues and encourage the adoption of safe farm practices in Saskatchewan. Through more education on safe farming practices and industry dangers, the Farm Safety Program aims to reduce farm injuries and fatalities in Saskatchewan.

The Farm Safety Program provides funding to eligible projects that focus on one of the following two priorities:

  • Farm safety education and training that engages producers and farm families in adopting safe farm practices; or
  • Education and training on mental health issues affecting farm safety.

Funding

Each project will be eligible for funding of up to $25,000 per project to a maximum of $50,000 per applicant per year. 

Project funding will be awarded on a competitive basis with up to 100 per cent of the project's eligible expenses being reimbursed.

Generally, funding will be awarded for projects with a duration of one year. Exceptions will be considered for multi-year projects or those that require more than one year to complete.

Collaborative projects among organizations are encouraged.
