Saskatoon is a growing, friendly city. Throughout its history, it has welcomed people from all over Canada and around the world. As of June 30, 2015, Saskatoon’s population was estimated to be 260,900. More and more people are choosing Saskatoon as a wonderful place to live, work, and raise a family!
Saskatoon is located in the central portion of the province of Saskatchewan, spread over a relatively flat area which dips into the South Saskatchewan River Valley. In the city, there are many attractive walking trails along the river valley. Technically in the Aspen Parkland section of the province, Saskatoon is surrounded by farmland.
Saskatoon has four distinct seasons. Winter and summer can be extreme; temperatures can range from -30 Celsius in January to +30 Celsius in July. However, the climate is not humid, which helps winter temperatures feel warmer and summer temperatures feel cooler. Also, Saskatoon is one of the sunniest places in Canada, averaging around 2381 hours of sunshine per year (that’s 6.5 hours, every day!).
“Saskatoon is totally happening!”
