Saskatchewan’s population grew by another 4,195 people in the third quarter of 2019, to an all-time high of 1,178,657 people.
This represents the 54th consecutive quarter of population growth in Saskatchewan.
“Saskatchewan continues to enjoy the longest and strongest period of sustained population growth since the 1920s,” Trade and Export Development Minister Jeremy Harrison said. “Since our government took office in 2007, Saskatchewan has now grown by nearly 170,000 people.”
Last month, Premier Scott Moe released the government’s new Growth Plan to ensure the 2020s are another decade of strong growth for the province.
“Our new Growth Plan includes goals of 1.4 million people living in Saskatchewan and 100,000 more jobs in our province by 2030,” Harrison said. “More people, jobs and opportunities means a better quality of life for everyone who calls Saskatchewan home.”
