APAS is Saskatchewan’s general farm organization - formed to provide farmers and ranchers with a democratically elected, grassroots, non-partisan, producer organization based on rural municipal boundaries. As the united voice of thousands of agricultural producers in Saskatchewan, we strive to represent the views of a wide variety of agricultural stakeholders in order to form comprehensive policies that can benefit all sectors of society.
APAS was formed from a resolution during the Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipalities (SARM) convention in the Fall of 1999, as an organization that could provide sound farm policy on behalf of Saskatchewan producers. In December 2000, the first APAS Board of Directors was elected.
