Import Export Overview

Saskatchewan is home to more than 40 per cent of Canada’s cultivated farmland with 18.9 million hectares (46.7 million acres). Saskatchewan is Canada’s primary growing region for grains, oilseeds and pulses. We also have more than six million hectares of natural land or pasture.

Saskatchewan is a leading supplier of agricultural products for some of the world’s fastest growing countries. With a growing global population demanding high-quality agri-food products, we are an increasingly important food supplier.

Production

Over the last 10 years, Saskatchewan has consistently produced over 30 million metric tonnes of field crops. In 2018, Saskatchewan farmers produced 35.4 million metric tonnes of cereal grains, oilseeds and pulses. This resulted in $13.4 billion worth of agricultural exports in 2018.

Safety

Saskatchewan’s reputation for safe, high-quality agri-food products is built on a stringent, science-based federal regulatory system. We ensure our safety and quality standards are met through agencies such as the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA), and the Canadian Grain Commission (CGC).

Innovation

Saskatchewan’s agriculture industry is a leader in adopting new practices that facilitate environmental sustainability, such as minimum tillage practices which conserve moisture, top-soil and fuel. Our agriculture industry is reducing greenhouse gas emission intensity through continued investments in research and adoption of new technology and practices.

Location

Saskatchewan is centrally located to world logistics systems that allow local products to be exported worldwide. Canada ships over 33 million metric tonnes of grain annually and is committed to improving the effectiveness of our transportation system to meet the growing demands of our international clients.
