Saskatchewan has seen the biggest population jump in 108 years, says the Government of Saskatchewan.
“Saskatchewan's population grew by 29,307 to 1,214,618 people in 2022, according to new population estimates released today by Statistics Canada. That's the largest increase in population for Saskatchewan in a single year since 1914,” says the government in a release.
Premier Scott Moe says with the province’s growing economy, job opportunities and great quality of life are all the reasons for the huge jump in population.
"in 2022, Saskatchewan led the country in economic growth and created more than 20,000 new full-time jobs," Moe said. "Our government is committed to seeing those opportunities and that growth continue.
