Saskatchewan Population Grows to More Than 1.17 Million

Released on June 14, 2018


Saskatchewan’s population has reached another all-time high, topping 1.17 million for the first time.

According to new figures released today by Statistics Canada, Saskatchewan grew by 1,488 people in the first quarter of 2018, to 1,171,240 people as of April 1.  That’s an increase of 11,691 people in the past year, and 157,806 more people in the past decade.

“Saskatchewan’s population has now grown in 48 consecutive quarters,” Trade and Export Development Minister Jeremy Harrison said.  “That’s the longest period of sustained growth since quarterly records were first published in 1971.”

The population increase in the most recent quarter was driven by net international migration of 2,731 people and a natural increase (births minus deaths) of 1,283, offset by net interprovincial migration of -2,526.

“Today, more people than even before call Saskatchewan home,” Harrison said.  “That’s a clear sign our province and our economy are on track.”
