A Beech B200 of Province of Saskatchewan Ministry of Central Services, was conducting air ambulance operations from Lloydminster (CYLL) to Saskatoon (CYXE).

able to identify some damage to the left wing and assumed the aircraft struck a bird. The flight crew decided to return to CYLL and arranged a visual approach with the Area Control Center. An emergency was not declared. The aircraft returned to CYLL and landed uneventfully. There were no injuries. The aircraft received significant left wing leading edge damage due to a bird strike.
