I found a source that allows the download of a shapefile for the grid system for Alberta, but am still in need of the same thing for the entire Dominion Land Survey Grid, or just Saskatchewan.

I'm working in the Agriculture industry on boundaries for fields. There are resources for locating specific locations, but I need to be able to create the boundaries in QGIS.

I was looking for the same thing this week and while the connection provided by Mapperz works, for whatever reason - the Cadastre layers shown (in Mapperz's nice screenshot) are no longer showing today. I found an archive of Cadastre layers (Township,Section,etc) on a public drive (link below) which was appropriate for my purposes. Zip Contents List Screenshot
