This program supports the game farm industry in Saskatchewan by providing licensing and regulatory programs. All domestic game farm operators are licensed and regulated according to The Domestic Game Farm Animal Regulations under The Animal Products Act.
In addition, effective April 6, 2018, game farm operators with farmed cervids are required to report any suspected or confirmed cases of Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) to the provincial Chief Veterinary Officer within 24 hours. The requirement was added due to changes in the CFIA’s control program for CWD. Check the CFIA’s CWD webpage for more information. CWD detected in farm cervids not eligible for CFIA’s CWD control program will be managed under The Diseases of Domestic Game Farm Animals Regulations.
