Saskatchewan is a prairie and boreal province in western Canada, the only province without a natural border. It has an area of 651,900 square kilometres, nearly 10 percent of which is fresh water, composed mostly of rivers, reservoirs, and the province’s 100,000 lakes.
As of Q1 2020, Saskatchewan’s population was estimated at 1,181,987. Residents primarily live in the southern prairie half of the province, while the northern boreal half is mostly forested and sparsely populated. Of the total population, roughly half live in the province’s largest city Saskatoon, or the provincial capital Regina. Other notable cities include Prince Albert, Moose Jaw, Yorkton, Swift Current, North Battleford, Melfort, and the border city Lloydminster.
Saskatchewan is Canada’s fifth largest province in area and sixth in population. Saskatchewan’s landscape makes its inhabitants conscious of the sky, and the changing patterns of light and shadow on clouds, which commonly offer magnificent sunrises and sunsets, are as much a part of the scenery as any contour of the earth.
Saskatchewan has a wealth of resources that is the envy of nations – agriculture, potash, uranium and oil. And the world is watching as Saskatchewan achieves technological firsts in crop science, plant protein, agricultural equipment and clean energy.
The province has a diversity of resources that has enabled it to weather global economic cycles. In fact, the province has seen record population, employment, investment and export growth in the past decade.
