The Farm and Ranch Water Infrastructure Program (FRWIP) is a program offered under the Canadian Agriculture Partnership (CAP), which provided producers funding to decommission abandoned or unused wells. This program is available to agriculture producers, First Nations, Rural Municipalities and agri-businesses.

Applicants are encouraged to contact an Agri-Environmental Technical Service (AETS) provider for assistance in completing the applications and pre-approval worksheets. The AETS contact in our area is Sarah Tranberg. She will work one-on-one with producers to assist in applying to the program and filling out your forms.

This new network will allow Saskatchewan residents to receive credible, accurate and timely crime prevention information directly from their local RCMP detachment. When a detachment becomes aware of an incident or crime, they can issue an advisory via the system and local residents who have signed up for the program will become aware of what happened within minutes.

Only those who have signed up to receive notifications from RCMP detachments in southern Saskatchewan will receive advisories.

Signing up to be part of the network is free and only takes a few minutes. You choose which RCMP detachment area(s) you want to receive notifications from and how you want to receive them, whether it be via text message, email, phone call or through the mobile app. Visit SARM.ca, SUMA.org or click here to proceed to the Saskatchewan Crime Watch website to sign up.
