The province administers more than 37 million hectares of Crown resource land, primarily in central and northern Saskatchewan, with some smaller holdings in the south. We manage Crown resource lands for the benefit of all people of Saskatchewan.
The province administers the purchase of Crown resource lands.
In general, Crown land may be sold:
For an existing lessee to purchase Crown resource lands
Certain categories of leased land may be available for purchase by the existing lessee only. In these instances, the lessee must make an application to potentially purchase the land.
The following types of leased land may be available for sale to the existing lessee:
There is no requirement to buy the land and lessees can continue leasing the property under a long-term lease.
For an unsolicited proposal to purchase Crown resource lands
To ensure transparency, information about proposals under active consideration will be posted on this website for at least 30 days before a final decision is made.
If you are an existing lessee in one of the eligible sale categories, complete an Application to Purchase Crown Land form and submit it to the Ministry of Environment land manager for your area. Contact information is provided below.
To submit an unsolicited development proposal involving Crown resource land, or for more information, contact the land manager for the proposed area.
Crown resource land is sold at fair market value, as determined by a land appraisal or, in the case of remote recreational or residential parcels, by land appraisal reports used to determine land values.
