Public Consultations for The Saskatchewan Farm Security Act will wrap up on Monday.

Agriculture Minister Lyle Stewart says the consultations will help them understand who should, or should not be, allowed to own farmland in Saskatchewan.

"For those who may not have access to the internet, a paper copy of the education document and the survey can be picked up at any Ministry of Agriculture regional office. The survey is relatively brief and shouldn't take more than ten to fifteen minutes to complete. This is a small amount of time to provide feedback on this important issue and to help ensure that our government is on the right path regarding farmland ownership."

"Consultations will help us understand who should or should not be allowed to own farmland in Saskatchewan, specifically pension plans, investment trusts, pension plan administrators, and foreign investors," he added. "As a reminder, currently only Canadian residents and 100 per cent Canadian owned entities can own more than ten acres of farmland in Saskatchewan."

Regulations announced in April put a pause on the acquisition of land holdings by such groups while the review takes place.

The online consultation process wraps up on Monday August 10th.
