Saskatoon Shines! The city’s motto refers to the fact that there isn’t a sunnier piece of real estate in Canada. Saskatoon sparkles as a community that uses all its many resources and historical strengths to keep pace with what’s current and prepare for what’s next, while keeping a focus on the quality of life for its residents.
Natural beauty is an abundant resource here and the city takes advantage of the scenic beauty along the river by providing parks, walking and bike trails right in the centre of town. The River Landing waterfront development serves the city’s desire for a modern concept of commercial, residential and cultural spaces combined in a single planned location. It is one example of the city’s housing strategy in action.
Saskatoon On the Move
Saskatoon is one of the fastest growing cities in Canada with a diversified and robust economy. Mining and farming have always been major occupations here. The city is keeping pace with recent trends in agricultural biotechnology. High tech industries are calling Saskatoon home, and providing employment in these growing fields. An example of the city’s commitment to growth is Ideas, Inc, a business incubator operated by the business community to assist new business startups.
Economic growth has been assisted by the strong education system in Saskatoon. There are over 50 elementary and secondary public schools. The goal of the staff is to enrich the whole community by enabling and encouraging each student to reach his full potential. Saskatoon has a strong Catholic School System as well. The University of Saskatchewan provides opportunities for students and residents with classes, museums, Huskies sporting events and community outreach, graduate and post graduate degrees.
