The Best Job Ever Offered Again in 2017

Released on September 30, 2016

The search for next year’s Saskatchewanderer begins soon. Interested candidates can apply from Wednesday, October 12 at noon until Monday, November 7 at noon. 2016 has been a landmark year for the Saskatchewanderer program. In August, the combined followers between Facebook, Twitter and Instagram surpassed 50,000, and numbers continue to rise. Since January, Instagram followers have more than doubled and the number of Facebook likes has nearly reached the 30,000 milestone. 

“Saskatchewan is a remarkably diverse province and over the past year I’ve had the privilege of experiencing that diversity first hand,” 2016 Saskatchewanderer Neil Fisher said. “Exploring breathtaking landscapes, being immersed in our agricultural heart and being inspired by unique entrepreneurs - without question it’s the best job in Saskatchewan.” With the mission to showcase Saskatchewan as the best place to live, work and play, program partners Tourism Saskatchewan and the Ministries of Parks, Culture and Sport, Agriculture and Economy are excited to renew the program for 2017. 

“Tourism Saskatchewan is a proud partner of the Saskatchewanderer program. Since its inception, the initiative has successfully bolstered the profile of our province and highlighted all that Saskatchewan has to offer,” Minister responsible for Tourism Saskatchewan Jeremy Harrison said. “Through his travels as Saskatchewanderer, Neil has showcased the vast array of tourism experiences with stunning photography and informative narrative, and has appealed to a wide online audience. We are so pleased to see that his efforts have significantly increased the program’s social media following on channels such as Instagram.” 

In 2017, CAA Saskatchewan will return as the program sponsor and DirectWest will come on board as the program’s search partner.

“Neil has been a terrific ambassador during this past year,” CAA Saskatchewan President and CEO Fred Titanich said. “By providing the Saskatchewanderer with a vehicle, gas vouchers and the valued CAA membership, Neil has been able to explore our great province while reminding residents that CAA is there for them, offering roadside assistance, travel, insurance and related member services. We have been a proud supporter of the Saskatchewanderer program since its inception in 2011.”

“As a digitally-focussed and Saskatchewan company, DirectWest is proud to support initiatives that generate positive online relationships and foster local pride,” Vice President of Marketing Colin Savage said. “Like the Saskatchewanderer, we are found across the province – helping people search, find and connect; how, when and where they like. With DirectWest as search partner, the Saskatchewanderer will use mysask411.com, the Mysask411 Mobile App and the SaskTel Phonebook to help them find local information and businesses along the way.” 

Interested candidates can apply at www.saskatchewanderer.ca/apply. The application process includes submission of a video, shot and edited, by the applicant. Questions regarding the application process can be emailed to saskatchewandererofficial@gmail.com
