Saskatchewan Transportation Week June 5 to 11

Released on June 3, 2016

The week of June 5 to 11 has been proclaimed Saskatchewan Transportation Week.  This annual event celebrates the people working in the province’s transportation sector.

“Our government recognizes the important role transportation infrastructure plays in getting Saskatchewan goods to market,” Highways and Infrastructure Minister Nancy Heppner said.   “Thank you to the people working in the transportation industry who do their part to help keep Saskatchewan strong.”

Saskatchewan exported $32.5 billion in goods to more than 150 countries in 2015, including a record $15.1 billion in agricultural sales.

“This week recognizes the dedicated men and women in various roles, such as building and maintaining the transportation network to those operating the various logistics services on that network, to help Saskatchewan business ship their goods to markets in Canada, North America and throughout the world,” Saskatoon Transportation Club President Dallas Beal said.

“Our government will continue to make key investments in infrastructure,” Heppner said.  “Our record $1.15 billion highways budget is a solid step toward meeting our commitment to invest $2.7 billion in the transportation system over the next four years, in addition to completing the Regina Bypass.”

The ministry is responsible for Saskatchewan’s 26,000 kilometres of provincial highways, regulating more than 2,000 kilometres of privately-owned shortline railways, 17 northern airports, 12 ferries and one barge.

The Saskatoon Transportation Club is a non-profit, volunteer organization that educates and promotes the logistics industry.  It helped establish the Saskatchewan Transportation Hall of Fame, which annually inducts a new member during Saskatchewan Transportation Week.
