The Provincial Rat Eradication Program (PREP) was established in the spring of 2010. Its goal is to promote uniformity and consistency in rat control methods towards the eradication of rats in Saskatchewan. Sask Agriculture funds the program through the Agriculture Fieldworker Policy and SARM administers the grants to rural municipalities. Since 2010, the program has grown with greater funding and RM participation.
Each of the six SARM divisions are represented by an elected Board member and a Regional PCO Supervisor. View the Map for contacts in your area.
