Game Management Plan

Saskatchewan's game species are a part of our heritage and a public resource belonging to all Saskatchewan residents. The responsible use and conservation of these resources is the responsibility of the Government of Saskatchewan. As such, Saskatchewan developed a plan to focus effort on priority actions to ensure we maintain game species populations and their habitat for future generations.

This 10-year provincial plan (2018-2028) focuses on the scientific management of game species while considering social and economic issues. This is reflected in the plan's three outcomes:

  • Sustainable management for the conservation of game species and their habitat;
  • Equitable allocation of game species to optimize social, cultural and economic benefits; and
  • Shared responsibility and public engagement in wildlife management.

The Game Management Plan is a dynamic, living framework that has the flexibility to respond to changing priorities and actions. The Game Management Plan includes:

  • Core Document – frames the fundamental elements of game management and lays out 76 priority actions to achieve the plan's outcomes.
  • Game Allocation Framework – guides decision-making on how harvestable game species are allocated to hunters

In the near future species management plans will be developed, which will guide how game species are managed and provide long-range management thresholds for population objectives for each species.
