The SSRWSI strives to protect water quality and quantity within the South Saskatchewan River. We ultimately believe that watershed stewardship is about serving the community by protecting resources for both the residents, and the natural ecosystems of the watershed. Some of the important actions that the watershed stewards address through education, awareness, and communication with members of the watershed community include:
The board of directors for SSRWSI consists of up to three representatives from each watershed planning area, up to two representatives from the City of Saskatoon as the largest municipality in the watershed, and two representatives from special interest groups.
The South Saskatchewan River Watershed Stewards Inc (SSRWSI) was incorporated in April 2007. It began as a steering committee consisting of members of the Watershed Advisory Committes (WACs) to develop and implement a watershed planning process and the Source Water Protection plan.
The South Saskatchewan River Watershed Stewards have grown enormously since their one staff member in 2008. Currently there are four dedicated staff members for the SSRWSI.

There is little in the natural environment, economy, and society of Saskatchewan that is not intimately tied to and sustained by the flow and storage of water... nowhere else in Canada does the lack or excess of water cause such widespread concern, nor are there many Canadian environments that are subject to greater seasonal change”
