Frequently Asked Questions
What is the Saskatchewan Institute of Agrologists (SIA)?
The SIA is the provincial body that registers practicing agrologists and provides an annual licence to practice. SIA regulates agrologists for competent and ethical practice in the same manner as other Institutes regulate professional engineers (PEng), charte red accountants (CPA), physicians (MD), lawyers, etc – with the mandate to protect the public interest established under The Agrologists Act.
Who should register with SIA?
Who should register with the SIA? The Agrologists Act requires persons both qualified and practicing agrology in the Province of Saskatchewan be registered with the SIA and pay an annual fee for a license to practice. The purpose of the legislation is to protect the public interest by ensuring those practicing are qualified and follow the Code of Ethics and Practice Standards.
Do memberships expire?
Yes, memberships expire annually on December 31st. Your membership can be renewed online. If your membership expires, you will no longer be eligibly to practice Agrology in Saskatchewan.
