Crown Resource Lands and Wild Rice Survey Now Available for Public Feedback

Released on December 11, 2017

The Government of Saskatchewan is requesting public feedback on regulations and policies as part of its review of The Crown Resource Land Regulations, 2017 and The Wild Rice Regulations, 2005.

These regulations have provisions for leases, licences, permits and easements on provincial Crown lands administered by the Ministry of Environment.  Wild rice production is one of the many sectors covered by disposition, but is currently covered in a separate set of regulations.

The ministry administers 37.7 million hectares of Crown resource land in central and northern Saskatchewan, with some small holdings in the south.  These lands are a public resource.

“Our goal is to eliminate barriers to our ability to efficiently administer public lands,” Environment Minister Dustin Duncan said.  “It is important to seek feedback from the public and our clients to gain valuable insight into their thoughts and experience with the ministry’s land authorization policies and processes.”

More than $5 million is generated annually from more than 6,500 wild rice and land use dispositions issued on Crown resource lands.  Other disposition examples may include mine sites, outfitter lodges, recreational and trappers’ cabins and gravel pits.

The Crown resource land and wild rice survey is available online at

The survey will be available until December 31, 2017.
