Saskatchewan Releases Invasive Species Framework

The Ministries of Environment and Agriculture are pleased to release the Invasive Species Framework to help manage the threat and impact of invasive species in Saskatchewan, such as purple loosestrife, zebra mussels and mountain pine beetles. 

Developed with the help of partners inside and outside of government, the framework outlines a province-wide approach to managing invasive species. It ensures that all provincial invasive species prevention and management efforts are aligned, and establishes a foundation for future strategies, programs and committees.

"In Saskatchewan we enjoy an abundance of natural resources, but invasive species create significant risks to our ecosystem," Environment Minister Dana Skoropad said. "The Invasive Species Framework will be key to helping us achieve the goals related to agriculture, forestry and tourism in the Saskatchewan Growth Plan, as well as protect our environment for future generations."
