Province Proclaims March Rural Women's Month

Released on March 1, 2018

Today the Government of Saskatchewan proclaimed March to be Rural Women’s Month in Saskatchewan.

“Thousands of rural women choose to make agriculture their career and they make great contributions to their communities and to our province,” Agriculture Minister Lyle Stewart said.  “By proclaiming Rural Women’s Month, we join in celebrating the achievements that help to make Saskatchewan the strong province that it is.”

According to the 2016 Canadian Agriculture Census, one in four farm operators in Saskatchewan is a women.  These women are part of a growing trend across the country.  In Canada, nearly 78,000 women are farm operators, accounting for 28.7 per cent of producers, up from 27.4 per cent in 2011.  Rural Women’s Month is a time to recognize the impact women make on agriculture and our economy as a whole.

“Increasingly, women in agriculture are shaping and driving the important conversations we are having in our rural communities,” Minister Responsible for the Status of Women Tina Beaudry-Mellor said.  “Rural Women’s Month acknowledges the significant role women play every day across our province.”

The province has recognized women in the agriculture industry for many years by annually proclaiming March as Rural Women’s Month.  The month is observed by women’s groups across Saskatchewan as they celebrate and recognize the contributions rural women make to the province.
