Overview

Saskatoon is the largest city in Saskatchewan, with a population of 331,000. The city is one of Canada's fastest growing urban centres and has been called the "Paris of the Prairies" or "Bridge City" for its nine river crossings of the South Saskatchewan River.

The economy of Saskatoon was built on potash mining, oil and gas development, and wheat production, with strong contributions for other grains, livestock, uranium, gold, diamond, coal and their spin-off industries. Notable corporate head offices in the city include the world's largest publicly traded uranium company, Cameco, and the world's largest potash producer, Nutrien.

A thriving business sector also drives an increasingly diverse economy in the city. Businesses can draw on the resources of the University of Saskatchewan and collaborative communities such as Innovation Place, which has supported more than 170 start-ups since 1993.

Home to tech incubator, Co.Labs, Innovation Place enables supportive partnerships and offers flexible office space, bringing together almost 150 agriculture, information technology, and environmental, life sciences and agricultural biotechnology industries in a technology park setting.

Saskatoon's digital media scene exemplifies a growing start-up culture, with companies such as Noodlecake, Point2, Vendasta Technologies, and Zu.
