SASKATCHEWAN’S POPULATION CONTINUES TO GROW | News and Media | Government of Saskatchewan Economic Development  Saskatchewan Population Growth

Saskatchewan’s population continues to grow, up by 2,946 people in the last quarter of 2016 and up by 17,217 in 2016.  There were 1,158,339 people living in Saskatchewan as of January 1, 2017, according to the latest population estimates released today by Statistics Canada.

Both the quarterly and annual population gains were the third highest among Canadian provinces.

“The growing population shows that despite the budget challenges we are addressing, Saskatchewan’s economy remains strong and resilient,” Premier Brad Wall said.  “Last month, Saskatchewan led the country in job growth, so I expect the population to keep growing as new opportunities attract new people to our province.”

Over the past decade (January 1, 2007 to January 1, 2017), Saskatchewan’s population grew by more than 163,000 people – the biggest increase in any 10-year period since 1921 to 1931.  That’s a sharp contrast to the previous decade (January 1, 1997 to January 1, 2007) when Saskatchewan’s population actually dropped by more than 23,000 people.
