Still Growing Strong: Saskatchewan’s Population Tops 1,174,000

More people are living in Saskatchewan than ever before, as the province’s population grew to 1,174,462 as of July 1, 2019, according to new figures released today by Statistics Canada.

Saskatchewan’s population has now grown in 53 consecutive quarters, increasing by more than 183,000 people during that time.

Immigration and Career Training Minister Jeremy Harrison said a growing province creates opportunities for Saskatchewan people and provides the resources needed to support important government services.

“As we get ready to enter the 2020s, our government is planning for another decade of strong growth in Saskatchewan,” Harrison said. “This fall, we will release a new growth plan for the new decade, with new growth targets and actions we will take to achieve those targets.”

Saskatchewan grew by 3,435 people in the second quarter of 2019. A net increase of 4,510 people from international migration and a natural increase (births minus deaths) of 1,644 people was partially offset by net interprovincial outmigration of 2,719 people.
