APAS Rural Connectivity Task Force – Internet Speed Test
The Agricultural Producers Association of Saskatchewan (APAS) is a grassroots agricultural policy and advocacy organization. They identify the most important problems facing farmers and ranchers, come up with innovative policy solutions, and then promote those solutions to government and industry.
APAS is working on a new project that will benefit every town and village in the province – the APAS Rural Connectivity Task Force. The new Task Force met with industry experts, service providers, and regulators to understand why internet and cellular coverage is still so bad in rural Saskatchewan, and identify ways to fix the problem. APAS created a Speed Test for Saskatchewan. It’s an easy way to calculate your internet speed to give a better understanding of service levels across the province. CLICK HERE for more information.

MINOR HOCKEY INFORMATION
Effective immediately and until further notice the conversion of the community hospital in Wolseley will take place. To enable this conversion, the emergency department in Wolseley will now be temporarily CLOSED effective Thursday May 14, 2020. By converting the purpose of Community hospitals in some of our communities we can protect our most vulnerable populations. Keeping patients and staff safe and healthy continues to be our number one priority. This is part of the Integrated Rural areas surge plan which will allow for the movement of alternate level of care patients out of tertiary and regional hospitals to create space for the potential COVID-19 surge.
In the event of an emergency, call 911. EMS will be dispatched to respond. EMS will assess the patient, initiate treatment, and transport to the most appropriate facility to provide further care for the patient’s illness/injury. Inpatient acute care admissions will temporarily stop and only patients considered alternate level of care will be admitted. Primary Health Care services will be maintained.

WOLSELEY LANDFILL CHANGES
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN THAT, effective June 1, 2018 all Construction Demolition materials will no longer be accepted at the Wolseley Landfill, until further notice. It is the responsibility of those (i.e. contractors and residents) to find alternative methods of proper disposal of these materials.
This decision is directly related to current waste disposal cell capacity and changing regulations at the Ministry of Environment (“MoE”). The MoE no longer permits, authorizes or approves the construction of any new waste disposal cells in the province unless they are engineered and constructed to best management practices. The Town of Wolseley will assess and investigate different options to come to a resolution for the Wolseley Landfill.
Dated this 18th day of May, 2018

** CONTRACTOR NOTICE **
As per Resolution No. [397/17] at the October 18th regular meeting of Council, we are advising Contractors that effective January 1, 2018, the
Town of Wolseley Landfill will no longer be accepting shingles.
This decision was based on the fact that shingles are taking up too much space. Council therefore wishes to extend the useful life of the Wolseley Landfill, by discontinuing the acceptance of shingles.
Alternative options are available are contacting neighbouring communities who may still accept shingles, or contacting a waste disposal company to supply and place a large disposal bin at the job site.
We thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
