Welcome to Region 6, the gorgeous Province of Saskatchewan!  We are an engaged, active group of farmers and non-farming members from across the Province. Region 6 is also home to the National Office, on the north end of Saskatoon.  Join us in our efforts to build a vibrant farm and food system in Saskatchewan!

The National Farmers Union is organized regionally. Each Region holds an annual convention where regional officers are elected and resolutions brought forward by members of the region are debated. Resolutions that are passed at the regional level are then debated and voted on at the annual National Convention. One board member from each region serves as the Regional Coordinator.

How should we spend taxpayers’ limited dollars?
Letters
