Saskatchewan


Saskatchewan is a province in Western Canada located in the prairie region, bordered by Alberta to the west, the Northwest Territories to the north and Manitoba to the east. Saskatchewan also has a southern border with the U.S. states of Montana and North Dakota. Saskatchewan is Canada’s fifth largest province in area (651 900 km²) and sixth in population with 1'098,352 inhabitants in 2016. Its capital is Regina and its largest city is Saskatoon. The spoken language is English. Its prime minister is Scott Moe and its lieutenant-governor is Russell Mirasty.

Saskatchewan is one of only two Canadian provinces without a saltwater coast, and it is the only province whose boundaries are all wholly artificial. With its septentrional location, the province has a temperate continental climate in the center and east, drying out to a semi-arid steppe climate in the south and southwest. In the north, from La Ronge, the climate is subarctic. Winters are cold and summers very hot with occasional tornadoes and severe thunderstorms.

Before the arrival of Europeans, Saskatchewan was populated by Athabaskans, Algonquians and Sioux. These latter were forcibly displaced in the 1870s due to the construction of the Canadian Pacific Railway and the free allocation of land to volunteer settlers. Thanks to its growing population, Saskatchewan became a Canadian province in 1905.

The economy is based mainly on agriculture (wheat, corn, rapeseed, linen, rye, etc.) although Saskatchewan is the world's largest exporter of potash and an important exporter of uranium: it has McArthur River, the largest mine in the world, with which it supplies most Western countries.
