Saskatchewan population still booming
Province grew by 22 thousand people in one year
Gone are the days when more people moved out of Saskatchewan than moved in. We are growing at a rate that hasn't been seen since shortly after we became a province.
The latest numbers show Saskatchewan’s population grew by more than 22,100 people between July 1 of 2011 and July 1 this year. This jump marks the greatest growth in a single year since 1921. We became a province in 1905.
Initially, the Saskatchewan Party government set a goal to attract 100,000 people in 10 years. In the past five years alone, more than 80,000 people have already moved in to call Saskatchewan home thanks to one of the strongest economies in Canada.
The current population sits just under 1.08 million.
