The Government of Saskatchewan operates 12 ferries and one barge located across the province.
Typically, the ferries operate from April to November, but operations depend on weather and whether the crossing is frozen.
Fluctuating water levels in the rivers may cause ferry operation and maximum weights allowed to change without notice.
Saskatchewan ferries will grant priority to enclosed vehicles during the COVID-19 pandemic to comply with Transport Canada regulations. Exceptions will be made for open-air farm vehicles because farming is essential to our food security. Anyone using an open-air farm vehicle must stay on the vehicle and maintain appropriate physical distance.
Other open-air vehicles and pedestrians may be considered if there is adequate space on a specific crossing, but we cannot guarantee them service. Anyone not travelling in an enclosed vehicle should understand they might not be allowed to board and plan accordingly.
