Heritage Rivers: Nomination

The Heritage Rivers Nomination Document

The Heritage Rivers Nomination Document of the Saskatchewan Rivers began in 2007, when a number of individuals and groups interested in the South Saskatchewan and Saskatchewan Rivers came forward and suggested they be designated Canadian Heritage Rivers. Under the auspices of Partners FOR the Saskatchewan River Basin (PFSRB) and its mandate to promote watershed stewardship and sustainability, these multiple organizations and individuals were able to put together the nomination document detailing why the Saskatchewan and South Saskatchewan Rivers are suitable to be designated as “Heritage Rivers”.

The resulting nomination document would not have been possible without the cooperation of the larger Saskatchewan River Basin community, including the numerous individuals, local agencies, municipalities, organizations, and the general public who donated their time, energy, and experience to the project. The Gabriel Dumont Institute of Saskatoon was vital to the project by undertaking the research necessary for the background document.
