Living in Saskatchewan, you will enjoy a high quality of life and a low cost of living. The population has grown by 100,000 in the last six years. This steady growth is likely to continue in the years to come.

Here are some of the reasons to consider Saskatchewan:

  • In Saskatchewan’s cities and communities, housing costs are lower than in most major cities in Canada, and owning a home is affordable and achievable for many people
  • Unlike in other provinces, there are no personal premiums or personal charges for basic and needed health care services in Saskatchewan
  • The provincial sales tax of five per cent is the lowest of any province that charges sales tax
  • It costs less to go to and from work because the average commute time in Regina and Saskatoon is 20 minutes
