Agricultural Crown Land Leases

How to lease agricultural Crown land

Agricultural Crown land lease auctions have been paused to allow for the implementation of the First Nation and Métis Consultation Policy Framework policy changes. The two-year pause was implemented in summer 2023.

Rental Rates

The Crown land grazing rate is set by formula in section 3-5 of The Provincial Land (Agriculture) Regulations using the preceding October and November cattle prices and billed yearly.

Cultivation rates are communicated to lessees in the spring of each year. Rental rates on saleable cultivated and previously cultivated lands increased by 45 per cent over the formula rate on January 1, 2018. The rate increase does not apply to grazing co-operatives, former federal (PFRA) or transitioned Saskatchewan Pastures Program pastures.
