Strong Growth for Saskatchewan's Merchandise Exports

Released on January 5, 2023

Saskatchewan's economy remains one of the strongest in the nation, with November 2022 merchandise exports seeing a 44.5 per cent increase compared to November 2021. This is the second highest increase among provinces. Total merchandise exports for November 2022 were valued at more than $5 billion.

"We have a secure and stable supply chain in Saskatchewan, providing the food, fuel, fertilizer and critical minerals that a growing world needs," Trade and Export Development Minister Jeremy Harrison said. "Our government remains committed to supporting and expanding our export sectors in order to create jobs, generate wealth and attract investment to our province."

In the first eleven months of 2022, merchandise exports in Saskatchewan increased by 43.5 per cent, compared to the same period in 2021. Saskatchewan ranked second among the provinces in percentage change.

Aircraft and other transportation equipment and parts and metal and non-metallic minerals lead the year-over-year export growth, with increases of 237.6 per cent and 87.8 per cent respectively.

Saskatchewan has seen strong growth in several other key economic indicators in recent months. Saskatchewan led the provinces in October 2022 manufacturing sales, with a 7.4 per cent increase compared to the previous month. October 2022 also saw a 9.0 per cent increase in retail trade, a 46.7 per cent jump in wholesale trade, and a 39.3 per cent increase in building construction, compared to October 2021.

In November 2022 the province's unemployment rate fell to 4.2 per cent, the second lowest among provinces, and well below the national average of 5.1 per cent (seasonally adjusted).
