A record year for Saskatchewan agriculture
Saskatchewan was built on farming, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the agriculture industry makes up a significant portion of the province’s economy. Over 50,000 people in the province are directly employed in the industry, and an innumerable amount of careers are indirectly affected by it. And, if you’re looking at monetary value, the industry regularly accounts for approximately 10 per cent of the provincial GDP.
