The province-wide pruning ban for elm trees ends today. The pruning ban is in place each year from April 1 to August 31 to ensure that elm bark beetles, which transmit Dutch elm disease (DED), are not attracted to freshly-pruned trees when the beetles are most active.

Provincial regulations also restrict elm wood storage, especially firewood, as it is a common habitat for the elm bark beetle. At any time of the year, elm branches, logs, and firewood must be taken to the nearest approved disposal site. In Saskatoon, the landfill is the only site approved for elm disposal.

Immigration is important to Canada’s economy and population growth. It is estimated that Canada needs 350,000 immigrants every year to meet its workforce needs. By 2035, 25 per cent of Canada’s population will be 65-years-old and above. In short, Canada will need more workers to support the economy. Our local and provincial economies plus the associated health of our communities in the years ahead depend on making Saskatoon and Saskatchewan a supportive and welcoming place for immigrant families.
