Transfer of Grazing Pastures

Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) is working with the Governments of Saskatchewan and Manitoba, which own over 90% of the pasture land, to transition the land to users with a more direct interest and to phase out federal involvement in management.

This transition will occur over a six-year period to ensure that the process optimizes future economic and employment opportunities for the affected rural communities.

For more information about the future uses of these lands please contact the Government of Manitoba or the Government of Saskatchewan.
