Deputy Minister's Message

Deputy Minister Rick Burton
Agriculture is a key industry for the province and one where it’s easy to see the impact of innovation. Our industry is piloting innovation and is a leader in adopting new technology. In fact, the last census numbers show Saskatchewan has the highest percentage of farms in Canada using technologies like GPS, smartphones and auto-steer. It’s important we foster innovation to make way for the bright ideas to take our industry into tomorrow.
One of the guiding agreements to help our industry in the future is the Canadian Agricultural Partnership (CAP). It will replace Growing Forward 2 in April 2018 to govern business risk management programs and investments in strategic initiatives. This past July at the annual meeting of Federal, Provincial and Territorial Ministers of Agriculture, Agriculture Minister Lyle Stewart joined his counterparts from across the country to reach an agreement on the key elements of CAP. More information can be found in the Saskatchewan Agrees to Canadian Agricultural Partnership News release.
