Saskatchewan continues to see strong results in key economic indicators with the value of wholesale trade jumping 64.8 per cent between June 2021 and June 2022, the highest increase among all provinces.

Saskatchewan also saw significant wholesale trade growth between May 2022 and June 2022 with an increase of 14.9 per cent, the second highest increase among all provinces.
