The Government of Saskatchewan announced that as of December 4, 2022 the province’s population has reached 1.2 million people.

Saskatchewan accounts for only three percent of Canada’s total population of 39.1 million people.

Saskatchewan is the least populated province west of the maritime provinces. It ranks sixth, behind Ontario, Quebec, British Columbia, Alberta, and Manitoba.

Just last month the Government of Canada set bold immigration targets for the next three years, however Saskatchewan has set a target of only 1.4 million residents, which it hopes to reach by the end of the decade.
