Spring Legislative Session Focused On Supporting Growth And Quality Of Life In Saskatchewan

Premier Scott Moe today said the government has delivered critical support to build the Saskatchewan economy and sustain high-quality services as the province continues to deal with the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
