The Saskatchewanderer

With over half of the landscape being covered by forest, one-third by farmland and one-eighth by freshwater, Saskatchewan is 651,900 kms² of adventure just waiting to be explored by residents and tourists alike.

Saskatchewan has many rich and diverse stories to tell and beautiful places worth exploring and the innovative staff in the Ministry of Parks, Culture and Sport have always known the world could use a little more Saskatchewan.

That’s why we scouted high and low across the province to find a person who could create organic, user-generated content showcasing the province as the best place to live, work and play. This person needed to create informative and interesting content engaging audiences near and far. We found our first Saskatchewanderer in 2011.

The Saskatchewanderer started off as a summer student position, quickly expanding to a year-long role in 2014. Today, the program is powered by four government partners including Tourism Saskatchewan and the Ministries of Agriculture, Economy, and Parks Culture and Sport. The program also has two corporate partnerships:  CAA Saskatchewan (est. 2011) and DirectWest (est. 2017).

In what is often described as the best job ever, each Wanderer spends his or her year touring the province while blogging, vlogging and social media-posting about their travel experiences. Last year’s Saskatchewanderer, Andrew Hiltz, produced more than 70 videos that received approximately 1.8 million views, visited 157 locations, travelled 45,637 kms and grew the program’s follower base by 35%.



Today the program boasts more than 75,000 “followanderers” over Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, and attracts its fair share of media coverage each year.

In January, Kevin Dunn was recruited as the province’s 2018 Saskatchewanderer.



Kevin worked for the City of Saskatoon and volunteered his skills in photography and videography in his spare time. Growing up, he fondly remembers travelling across this beautiful province with his family. He had always longed to make little stops along the way so that he could explore what each community had to offer.  He now has that chance as Saskatchewan’s official travel blogger for 2018.
