Guide to Saskatchewan - Regina, Saskatoon, Prince Albert, Swift Current, Moose Jaw and more!
With a population of under a million the Canadian province of Saskatchewan is a vast, open land with big skies up above. The prairie province is an agricultural powerhouse responsible for almost half of Canada's grain production and a world leader in the mining of potash and uranium.
Saskatchewan's major cities, Saskatoon and the capital Regina, are home to about half of the provincial population. The rest of the population lives in numerous small towns and villages spread across the wide-open prairies in the southern part of the province.
Regina's pride is an impressive urban park designed by renowned architect Minoru Yamasaki. The park built around Wascana Lake includes three museums, a theatre, concert venue and the Beaux-Arts provincial Legislative Building.
Saskatoon, the largest city in the province sits on the banks of the South Saskatchewan River. It is a modern city that is home to the University of Saskatchewan and a world-class center for Agricultural Biotechnology research.
The smaller communities of Saskatchewan each have its own charm. From the Moose Jaw tunnels dug by alcohol smugglers to the bison herds of Prince Albert national park there is something for everyone in the vast plains. With over 100,000 lakes, Saskatchewan is also a recreational paradise for boaters, fishing enthusiasts and wildlife lovers.
