Demography and Census Reports and Statistics

Demographic and census reports form a qualitative portrait of the people of Saskatchewan.


Population estimates are released on a quarterly basis by Statistics Canada's Demography Division. These estimates are Canada's official population figures. In addition to being an economic indicator, they have a variety of uses, such as the determination of federal transfer payments and electoral boundaries. Numerous sources, including the census, are used to produce the population estimates. Following each quarterly release by Statistics Canada, the Saskatchewan Bureau of Statistics produces a report on changes in Saskatchewan's population and the sources of those changes.

Quarterly Reports and Statistics

Annual Reports and Statistics


Every five years Statistics Canada conducts a national census. The census provides a detailed picture of the population's characteristics at a point in time. The results of the census are released in batches over the course of around two years. For each release of census data, the Saskatchewan Bureau of Statistics prepares a report detailing relevant or interesting developments in Saskatchewan.

2021 Census of Population Consultation Results

Before each census, Statistics Canada conducts a consultation program to gather views and ideas from data users and interested parties across Canada on:

  • how they use census data;
  • the type of information that should be in the census;
  • new or modified census content; and
  • new or supplementary data sources.

The consultation for the 2021 Census of Population was conducted from the fall of 2017 to the spring of 2018, and the results were released on April 8, 2019, in the report "2021 Census of Population Consultation Results: What we heard from Canadians." The report and other related materials are available on Statistics Canada's website at The road to the 2021 Census.

If assistance or further information is required, the Statistics Canada consultation team can be contacted via Statistics Canada's consultation website. The Saskatchewan Bureau of Statistics is also available to provide assistance.

The 2016 Census created a snapshot of life in Canada on May 10, 2016. The following reports provide 2016 Census results on major topics with a focus on Saskatchewan.

2016 Census Population and Dwelling Count Amendments

Following the release of population and dwelling counts, Statistics Canada sometimes amends the counts if an error is found in the data. Statistics Canada does not correct the census database or data products, but does publish population and dwelling count amendments, 2016 Census for affected census areas.
