Minister’s Message

Thank you for your interest in the 2017 Saskatchewan State of the Environment Report. I believe the report lays out some important information in a clear and understandable way. With this report, our government demonstrates a commitment to transparency that will inform open and honest discussion.

My hope is that interested people will use this report to help make important decisions about the future of Saskatchewan. In addition, I hope this report will raise awareness about how demands for growth can be balanced with the need for sustainability.

In this year's State of the Environment Report, we're trying a few new things. We will still maintain our commitments to objectivity and transparency. However, this year we are moving the report online to saskatchewan.ca/environment. This will allow our ministry to update and share new information as soon as it becomes available. Also, we will be using new language to explain things in a way that I hope is more accessible and understandable to most readers.

Thank you for your interest in our province, our people and our future.

Scott Moe
Minister of Environment
