Res #: 22-23A
Number: 22
Year: 2023
Midterm: No
Expired: No
Responses Received: No
Departments: Saskatchewan Ministry of Environment

WHEREAS rat control is a very important part in maintaining our health, and maintaining a higher quality of grain,
which in turn, helps us support our farmers’ livelihoods.

WHEREAS the rat control program in place currently helps ensure the rat population will stay at a minimum.

WHEREAS if the rat control program does not see an increase in funding, it is likely that areas may have to reduce their
contribution to the program, in turn, seeing an increase in the rat population once again.

BE IT RESOLVED that SARM lobby the Ministry of Agriculture to increase the funding for the Rat Control Program to
ensure that the program can continue, without the need to pass on any associated costs to our ratepayers.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that SARM approach the Ministry of Environment and request that compensation for the
Rat Control Program see an increase in funding in the coming years.
