General Information

Saskatoon straddles a bend in the South Saskatchewan River in the central region of the province of Saskatchewan. It is located along the Trans-Canada Yellowhead Highway. It is the largest city in Saskatchewan (2021 census population of 266,141), and has served as the cultural and economic hub of central Saskatchewan since its founding in 1882. The city is home to the University of Saskatchewan; the Meewasin Valley Authority, which protects the South Saskatchewan River and provides for the city’s popular riverbank park spaces; and the Wanuskewin Heritage Park, a National Historic Site of Canada and UNESCO World Heritage applicant, representing 6,000 years of First Nations history. Saskatoon has a significant Indigenous population and several urban Reserves. The city has nine river crossings and as a result is nicknamed “Paris of the Prairies” and “Bridge City”.
Saskatoon is one of the sunniest cities in Canada, with an average of 319 days of sunshine per year. In June, average temperatures range from a low of 9°C (49°F) to high of 23°C (73°F).
