  • More than 13.6 million visits are made to and within the province each year.
  • Tourism is an export industry, injecting $600 million annually to the local economy and stimulating growth throughout the province.
  • There are 63,800 Saskatchewan residents employed in tourism or tourism-related jobs.
  • With more than 3,200 attractions, events and businesses, Saskatchewan’s tourism industry showcases the province’s history, culture and traditions to the world.
  • Saskatchewan’s tourism sector is 95 per cent small- or medium-sized businesses, and many are independently owned or operated.

“The Government of Saskatchewan is pleased, once again, to proclaim Saskatchewan Tourism Week,” Minister Responsible for Tourism Saskatchewan Gene Makowsky said.  “There are countless reasons to celebrate our vibrant tourism industry that contributes significantly to the economy, motivates entrepreneurs and creates jobs.  The week is an occasion to acknowledge the people behind the great tourism experiences that Saskatchewan offers.”

“Saskatchewan Tourism Week draws attention to why tourism matters and what it means to the province,” Tourism Saskatchewan CEO Mary Taylor-Ash said.  “Our citizens benefit from an industry that provides enriching travel discoveries and showcases Saskatchewan’s natural beauty and warm hospitality.  Tourism Saskatchewan appreciates the enthusiasm of communities, attractions and operators for celebrating this special week for our industry.”

Saskatchewan Tourism Week celebrations are planned throughout the province and include public barbecues, community tours, flag-raising ceremonies, open houses, as well as contests and promotions.
