Saskatchewan- Statistics & Facts

Saskatchewan is one of Canada’s prairie provinces and is bordered by Alberta, Northwest Territories, Manitoba, and the U.S. States Montana and North Dakota. It is a landlocked province, as it is the only province with entirely artificial boundaries, and is the sixth-most populous province. Saskatchewan is home to about 1.18 million people, with its capital and largest city being Saskatoon, which is home to over 330,000 people. Nearly half the population lives in a large urban area , in Saskatchewan’s two largest cities, Saskatoon and Regina, while a third lives in a rural population.

Most residents of Saskatchewan identify themselves as Christians, and almost half of the population reports having British Isles origin. Furthermore, Saskatchewan has an Aboriginal population of over 114,000 people, and 16 percent of people whose mother-tongue is an aboriginal language in Canada lived in Saskatchewan. Additionally, the diversity of Saskatchewan has been increasing, as the number of immigrants has increased overall over the years. Saskatchewan’s diversity, a strong economy, rather low unemployment rate, and affordable housing costs, have been appealing points for immigrants.

Saskatchewan has the fifth-highest GDP out of all Canadian provinces. The driving force behind this GDP is the mining, quarrying, and oil and gas extraction industry, which is the most lucrative industry, and has the highest labor productivity. Considering Saskatchewan is home to many natural resources, it is no wonder it is a leader in mineral, crop, and oil production. Oil and natural gases found underneath the prairie has shown to be one of the province’s most important minerals. Furthermore, Saskatchewan is home to over 100,000 lakes, which contributes to the province being a leader in the agriculture, forestry, fishing, and hunting industry in Canada. Their successful agriculture industry has also led them to be the leader in spring wheat production, which helps contribute to feeding the province.
