Sediment transport is a critical role that rivers have. However, in the Saskatchewan River Delta, sediment transport has been compromised by dams built along the river. This has significantly altered the function of the natural ecosystem.
Agriculture is considered the lifeblood of the prairies – integral to the economy and the well-being of many communities. However, this has come at an environmental cost. While agriculture has taken a toll on the land, many growers in Saskatchewan are leading the way in finding sustainable solutions.

The Canadian Boreal Forest Agreement (CBFA) was a historic agreement made in 2010 with the Forest Product Association of Canada (FPAC) and its member companies, as well as various environmental groups. It is a collaborative, multi-year agreement committed to achieving goals related to both environmental and economic sustainability in the boreal forest.
