Is a prairie province in Canada, which has a total area of 651,900 square kilometres and a land area of 592,534 square kilometres, the remainder being water area (covered by lakes/ponds, reservoirs and rivers). Saskatchewan is bordered on the west by the Province of Alberta, on the north by the Northwest Territories, on the east by Manitoba, and on the south by the U.S. states of Montana and North Dakota.
The Land of Agriculture
Saskatchewan’s economy was primarily associated with agriculture. However, increasing diversification has resulted in agriculture, forestry, fishing, and hunting only making up 6.8% of the province’s GDP. Saskatchewan grows a large portion of Canada’s grain. Wheat is the most familiar crop and the one most often associated with the province, but other grains like canola, flax, rye, oats, peas, lentils, canary seed, and barley are also produced.
Rich History, Colorful Culture and Physical Beauty
Over 250 museums in every corner of the province proudly describe its past, while university-led cutting edge research helps define its future. Art galleries display collections that bring many cultures to life, from First Nations’ traditions to modern experimental styles.
The People, The Land, The Sky and The Spirit
Unless you see it, you won’t believe Saskatchewan’s north: tens of thousands of lakes and rivers teeming with fish and ready to be explored; enormous forest wilderness areas with abundant wildlife and breathtaking, ever-changing scenery; a place where you can seek out your own special corner of the world, and feel the sense of peace that comes when you know in your heart that you’ve found it.
