The Wildlife Damage Program is comprised of:
• compensation for wildlife damage to agricultural crops (including alternative feeding systems),
• compensation for predation of livestock and poultry, and
• wildlife damage prevention for crops and livestock.
The Wildlife Damage Compensation Program is available for all Saskatchewan producers who suffer crop or livestock losses due to wildlife. The Saskatchewan Crop Insurance Corporation (SCIC) administers this program, but affected producers do not have to be a Crop Insurance customer to receive compensation through the Wildlife Damage Compensation Program.
Producers can receive 100 per cent compensation without any cost or premium to participate. The first 80 per cent of program funding is cost-shared by federal and provincial governments; the provincial government contributes the remaining amount.
