Agriculture and Food Processing

Agri-business and food processing is one of the largest economic drivers within the municipality.

We are home to some of Canada's leading international agribusiness companies. With two canola-crushing plants and four grain elevators, Yorkton helps contribute to Saskatchewan's 54% share in Canada's canola production. Due to the region's proximity to market, food processing continues to expand in the region.
