The Premier’s Breakfast kicked off Canada’s Farm Show today, with Premier Scott Moe delivering a “State of Agriculture in Saskatchewan” message saying the outlook is positive.

After his presentation, when speaking with media, Premier Moe said there is a synergy when it comes to agriculture opportunities in Saskatchewan that allows employers to pull both rural and urban ag talent when hiring.

He said that when companies are looking for locations to build new facilities and make new agriculture related investments, such as the new Cargill facility, Saskatchewan is well positioned as it allows employers to pull in top talent from cities like Regina, while also pulling in talent from nearby rural areas. He believes this unusual ability to pull both rural and urban applicants for employers helps Saskatchewan remain competitive.

In July 2022 Cargill held a ceremonial groundbreaking ceremony for the construction of its new canola processing facility in Regina. When construction is completed, the Cargill facility will have an annual production capacity of 1 million metric tons.

Canada’s Farm Show is being held in Regina until Thursday, June 20. It is considered an important agricultural show, showcasing the latest equipment and technology, attracting thousands of visitors from Canada and around the world.
