- The province is celebrating yet another milestone following a Statistics Canada report that shows more people continue to call Saskatchewan home.
The government has announced that our population has now surpassed 1.17 million residents for the first time.
With our population now surpassing 1.17 million residents, that's also thanks to 1,488 new people moved to the prairies in the first quarter of 2018. Giving us just over 11,000 new neighbours in the past year.
In the last decade, we've welcomed more than 150,000 new residents.
