Saskatchewan is rich in farmland, forests and natural resources. These resources are used in a variety of ways that provide many opportunities for growth and job creation. In order to maintain healthy ecosystems, environmental protection must be balanced with economic growth.
Monitoring and implementation of effective land-use management practices is the best way to maintain that balance and assure a healthy environment far into the future. Governments have the task of making decisions on how best to manage and allocate land. Federal, provincial, First Nations and municipal governments all share this important responsibility.
