SK FARMLAND OWNERSHIP CONSULTATIONS OPEN FOR TWO MORE WEEKS


Written By: Eric Anderson, Jul 27, 2015

The Government of Saskatchewan released today ......

There are two weeks left to participate in the farmland ownership survey. Consultations run until Monday, August 10. 

As of July 24, 2015, more than 1,700 surveys have been received.  The information collected will help the Government of Saskatchewan determine who should be allowed to own farmland in Saskatchewan. 

“We are pleased with the amount of participation to date,” Agriculture Minister Lyle Stewart said.  “That being said, there is still time left to take part, and I encourage everyone interested to have their say.  The more people who participate, the fuller our understanding will be of public opinion regarding farmland ownership in our province. It will help ensure that we make the best decisions for the people of Saskatchewan.”

Once consultations end, survey results and comments will be posted online in the fall of 2015.  Names, addresses and all other identifying information will be removed before results are published.  After the results have been analyzed, decisions will be made regarding next steps. 

The survey can be completed online at www.Saskatchewan.ca/farmland.  Paper copies are available at Ministry of Agriculture Regional Offices and can be requested by calling the Agriculture Knowledge Centre at 1-866-457-2377.  An education document accompanies the survey to give participants information regarding the existing legislation surrounding farmland ownership in the province.
