Saskatchewan Sees Biggest Population Jump in 108 Years

Released on March 22, 2023

Saskatchewan's population grew by 29,307 to 1,214,618 people in 2022, according to new population estimates released today by Statistics Canada. That's the largest increase in population for Saskatchewan in a single year since 1914.

Premier Scott Moe said the province's growing economy, job opportunities and great quality of life are all reasons for the huge jump in population.

"in 2022, Saskatchewan led the country in economic growth and created more than 20,000 new full-time jobs," Moe said. "Our government is committed to seeing those opportunities and that growth continue.

"Later today, our government will deliver a budget designed to ensure that growth continues and that it's growth that works for everyone."
