The Saskatchewanderer

With over half of the landscape being covered by forest, one-third by farmland and one-eighth by freshwater, Saskatchewan is 651,900 kms² of adventure just waiting to be explored by residents and tourists alike.

Saskatchewan has many rich and diverse stories to tell and beautiful places worth exploring, and the innovative staff in the Ministry of Parks, Culture and Sport have always known the world could use a little more Saskatchewan.

That’s why we scouted high and low across the province to find a person who could create organic, user-generated content showcasing the province as the best place to live, work and play. This person needed to create informative and interesting content engaging audiences near and far. We found our first Saskatchewanderer in 2011.

The Saskatchewanderer started off as a summer student position, quickly expanding to a year-long role in 2014. Today, the program is powered by four government partners including Tourism Saskatchewan and the Ministries of Agriculture, Trade and Export Development, and Parks, Culture and Sport. We are proud to announce that after years of partnership support, CAA Saskatchewan (est. 2011) is the official sponsor of the Saskatchewanderer program for the 2019 season.

In what is often described as the best job ever, each Wanderer spends his or her year touring the province while blogging, vlogging and social media-posting about their travel experiences. 2018’s Saskatchewanderer, Kevin Dunn, produced more than 60 videos, visited 122 locations, attending 143 different activities and events while travelling 44,342 kms.

Today the program boasts nearly 90,000 “followanderers” over Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, and attracts its fair share of media coverage each year.

2019 Saskatchewanderer Zane Buchanan

Zane Buchanan, 2019 SaskatchewandererIn January, Zane Buchanan was awarded the title of the province’s 2019 Saskatchewanderer.

A native to Saskatchewan with experience living and working away from the province, Zane will bring a unique perspective to the role. He has a passion for the arts and social media blogging, and looks forward to meeting the people who make the province an inviting destination. 

This year our Wanderer is introducing a trusty side-kick, Stedman (his dog), who will travel the province by his side. This will no doubt make for some fun photos and stories you will not want to miss. Follow them on their adventures this year.
