Saskatchewan merchandise exports totalled nearly $30 billion in 2019. International trade is an important part of our economic activity. The United States is Saskatchewan's top market, followed by China, Japan, Brazil and India. The province exports about 67.7% of what it produces to outside of Saskatchewan.
Saskatchewan Trade and Export Partnership (STEP) brings Saskatchewan products to the world. The agency works to increase the province's exports to established markets while tapping into new markets through the initiation of sales, contracts and projects for Saskatchewan exporters. Operating as a government and industry partnership, this membership-based organization helps Saskatchewan companies access global marketing opportunities. STEP provides customized services and programs, including trade and development, market intelligence, international finance and logistics and international development projects.
