The Agricultural Producers Association of Saskatchewan - or APAS - has been the voice of Saskatchewan’s farmers and ranchers since 2000.
APAS is Saskatchewan's only democratically elected, producer-run, non-partisan, grassroots, general farm organization.
We work on behalf of our members to address the most important issues facing the province's agriculture sector, including rail transportation, carbon taxation, business risk management, seed royalties, and water policy, to name a few.
APAS represents Saskatchewan as a member of the Canadian Federation of Agriculture and advocates on behalf of Saskatchewan agricultural producers to all levels of government.
We learn from our members about the most important problems farmers face, come up with innovative policy solutions, and promote these solutions to government and industry leaders. Our work leads directly to programs, policy, and legislation that serve farmers better!
