Beaver Control Program

Year: 2016

Number: 4-16M

Department: Saskatchewan Ministry of Agriculture

Midterm: Yes

WHEREAS beavers and the structures they create cause many issues on watersheds within provincial pastures resulting in flooding of pasture infrastructure, adjacent agricultural lands, rural municipality (RM) property and roads that can be a public safety concern and financially demanding; and

WHEREAS the funding allocated by the Province of Saskatchewan toward the Beaver Control Program is greatly needed and appreciated, it is currently only accessible by RMs and First Nation Bands and is over-subscribed every year; and

WHEREAS an additional provincial fund dedicated to controlling problem beavers on provincial pastures would reduce the migration of beavers into adjacent lands and reduce the development of potential obstructions on provincial watersheds;

BE IT RESOVLED that SARM lobby the Provincial Government for additional funding dedicated to controlling problem beavers on provincial pastures.
