Caitlin Taylor Wins Year-Long Saskatchewanderer Position

Released on February 4, 2014

Caitlin Taylor, the 2013 summer Saskatchewanderer, is back and this time she’s going to explore all facets of Saskatchewan for an entire year.
 
“When I learned that I won the expanded Saskatchewanderer position, I was so excited,” Taylor said.  “In fact, I’m still excited.  I feel like I’m dreaming.  I can’t wait to start sharing our province’s terrific stories with the world.” 

In addition to showing what makes the province a great place to play, Taylor is going to demonstrate why it’s a great place to live and work.  Taylor’s extensive film and social media background - not to mention her previous wandering experience - makes her the perfect candidate to kick off the expanded Saskatchewanderer position.

The one-year pilot project, which used to be housed solely in the Ministry of Parks, Culture and Sport, is now a partnership between Parks, Culture and Sport, Agriculture, Economy and Tourism Saskatchewan. 

Nearly 40 people applied for the one-year position.  A review panel comprised of representatives from the partner organizations interviewed the most suitable candidates, and ultimately awarded the position to Taylor. 

“I am happy to have Caitlin on board as the Saskatchewanderer for the next year,” Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Kevin Doherty said.  “She did a wonderful job as our summer Saskatchewanderer and she has already put forward some great ideas for how she will adopt the project’s enhanced mandate.”

“Agriculture is the backbone of our economy and this expanded Saskatchewanderer program will help us showcase the benefits it provides to everyone in our province,” Agriculture Minister Lyle Stewart said.  “Agriculture is a modern, technologically-advanced, dynamic and exciting industry full of opportunity and I look forward to seeing Caitlin tell its true story.”  

“We are delighted to welcome Caitlin to the team,” Tourism Saskatchewan CEO Pat Fiacco said.  “She is a fine ambassador and has proven to be a great storyteller and social media celebrity.  Caitlin’s perspective on all there is to see and do in Saskatchewan and the wonderful opportunities here will, undoubtedly, influence people to explore for themselves what our province has to offer.”

 
The Saskatchewanderer will continue to post content to the official Saskatchewanderer YouTube channel and www.saskatchewanderer.ca and can be reached via Facebook, Twitter and Instagram:

She will wander the province until December 2014. 

CAA Saskatchewan and Bennett Dunlop Ford, sponsors since the program started in 2011, remain on board as sponsors in 2014.
