Government Announces Continued Five Year Funding for Saskatoon Prairieland Park

Released on January 8, 2018

Today, during the first day of this year’s Western Canadian Crop Production Show, Agriculture Minister Lyle Stewart announced a new $125,000 agreement for Saskatoon Prairieland Park Corporation.

This five year sponsorship provides the same level of funding as the agreement that expired on December 31, 2017.

The sponsorship will support agriculture-related events, such as the Crop Production Show, AG-EXperience for Students, Junior Ag Showcase, Youth Leadership Conference and the Saskatchewan Beef Expo.

“Saskatoon Prairieland Park is an important hub for the agriculture community, hosting events that are integral to the industry,” Stewart said.  “For the past 35 years, Crop Production Show has attracted producers from across the prairies with information on the latest practices, services, products and technology.  We are happy to provide our continued support for these valuable programs.”

More than 220,000 people visit Prairieland Park each year for agriculture-related events, which provides significant investment into the Saskatoon and area economy, as well as the provincial economy.

“Prairieland Park is proud to host and showcase some of the best agriculture programming on the prairies,” Saskatoon Prairieland Park CEO Mark Regier said.  “This ongoing support allows us to improve and expand our agriculture programming and we look forward to a continued partnership with the Ministry of Agriculture.”

Agriculture continues to be one of the most important parts of Saskatchewan’s diversified economy.  In 2016, agri-food exports totalled $14.4 billion.

The Government of Saskatchewan continues to support agriculture, with goals to increase crop production to 36.6 million tonnes and agri-food exports to $15 billion by 2020.
