General Status of Wild Species in Canada
Every five years, the National General Status of Species in Canada Working Group produces a report on the status of wild species in Canada. The SKCDC is a member of this working group and many of the species and ranks in our lists have been updated as a result of this ongoing project. 12,000 Saskatchewan species had ranks assigned in the 2020 report and the SKCDC has completed its incorporation of this information into our database. Work for the 2025 report is underway.
