Saskatchewan is a province with a high quality of life and a low cost of living. The population has grown by 163,000 in the last decade. The province is working to ensure that this steady growth continues and that Saskatchewan people experience the benefits of this growth.
Here are some of the reasons to consider Saskatchewan:
- In Saskatchewan’s cities and communities, housing costs are lower than in most major cities in Canada, and owning a home is affordable and achievable for many people
- Unlike in other provinces, there are no personal premiums or personal charges for basic and needed health care services in Saskatchewan
- The provincial sales tax of 6% is the lowest of any province that charges sales tax
- It costs less to go to and from work because the average commute time in Regina and Saskatoon is 20 minutes
