Minister's Message

Lyle Stewart, Minister of Agriculture
At the Ministry of Agriculture, we want to ensure farmers, ranchers and agribusinesses are getting the best programs and services possible. An initiative to review and modernize extension services provided by the Ministry is underway. This online survey will help us identify current and future needs of farmers and ranchers. Every voice is valuable in this process, whether you have used our extension services or not. Please take a few minutes to complete the survey before it closes on March 31. 

We have also wrapped up on our online survey on strategic priorities for the Next Policy Framework. An overwhelming majority of respondents told us markets and trade is their top priority. We recognize this is incredibly important as agricultural exports are a crucial part of Saskatchewan’s economy. In fact, in 2016 our exports reached an impressive $14 billion – the second-highest ever, only behind 2015. See the Next Policy Framework Survey article for more information on the survey results. Thank you to everyone who participated.
