River Access Study
The City of Saskatoon in partnership with Meewasin Valley Authority is conducting a river access study. The purpose of the study is to identify the river access requirements for Saskatoon residents, visitors, commercial enterprises, on-river special events, industrial users, emergency services, and monitoring services. The primary focus will be on facilities for launching and mooring motorized and non-motorized watercraft; however, it will address all forms of river access.

• Recreation: motoizedr boaters, canoeists, kayakers, rowers, and paddle boarders
• Commercial/Industrial: tour boats, dredging, construction and other barges
• Regulatory and Emergency Services: police, fire and water quality, environmental and other monitoring
As part of the study, citizens are invited to participate in an online survey to gather input on current launch/mooring opportunities and ideas on an optimal scenario. Click here to share your opinions on current launch/mooring opportunities and ideas on an optimal scenario.
