Saskatchewan Irrigation Strategy

The Government of Saskatchewan's Irrigation Strategy supports producers and the agricultural industry by working to increase the acres of irrigable land in the province. Expanding irrigable land is one of the 30 Goals for 2030 in Saskatchewan's Plan For Growth. By 2030, the plan is to add 85,000 new irrigated acres and attract private sector investment for additional irrigation development in Saskatchewan. For more information about the proposed Lake Diefenbaker Irrigation Expansion Project, please visit the Irrigation Expansion Project News Release.

Expanding irrigation will support the growth of diverse, high-value crops, which increases on-farm profitability, value-added processing opportunities, business attraction and employment. The Lake Diefenbaker Irrigation Expansion Project will also provide thousands of jobs for local people and residents of Saskatchewan during construction and operation.

Below are the strategic pillars and the intended outcomes of the Irrigation Strategy.
