The updated Saskatchewan Weed Control Act is now available online. Saskatchewan now has tougher, more effective legislation to help control invasive plants in the province, and those that threaten to invade. Please see the Weed Control Act and the Saskatchewan Gazette Dec. 10, 2010 (page 2397) for more information. Both are posted below for download:
