Agricultural Opportunities

Opportunities in agriculture and food processing in Saskatchewan are bountiful. Saskatchewan is home to more than 40 per cent of Canada’s cultivated farmland with 18.9 million hectares (46.7 million acres). With unparalleled scale, Saskatchewan is home to one of North America’s largest irrigation projects at Lake Diefenbaker. This project will have profound impacts offering opportunities for investment and processing opportunities. This project will develop over 200,000 ha of land will cost $4Billion to build out in 3 Phases.

World Trade Center Saskatoon is a member of 60 World Trade Center’s Member Advisory Council for Agriculture Globally. In 2022, Saskatchewan produced 85 % of Canada’s lentils, 77 % of Canada’s durum, 74 % of Canada’s flaxseed, 71 % of Canada’s mustard seed, 53 % of Canada’s canola, 49 % of Canada’s peas and 37 % of Canada’s non-durum wheat. Plant-based food developments, environmental policy and assurance of supply have all brought new attention to Saskatchewan and its scale of operations and the opportunities here.

In 2022, Saskatchewan exported $18.8 Billion in agrifood exports and witnessed over $30 Billion in new capital investment, much of which was in the agrifood processing area.
