The Lake Diefenbaker Irrigation Projects will have a significant impact on Saskatchewan’s economy for many years to come. In addition to the thousands of construction jobs created during the build of the three projects, changes to agricultural output will create more jobs in processing and transportation. Projected returns in Gross Domestic Product are in the $40 to $80 billion range.
A survey for farmers and ranchers in the Westside Irrigation Projects area is now open for responses. This survey serves as an important input into the project planning stage for the Westside Irrigation Projects. All farmers and ranchers who own, rent or lease land in the Westside Irrigation Projects (WIP) area are encouraged to respond to the survey.
All responses will be entirely anonymous and confidential. The survey will take approximately 10 minutes to complete. Please click the link below to participate.
