Saskatchewan is one of the quietest and least populated provinces in Canada, with over one million inhabitants. It is also the perfect place for students who wish to live a small-town university experience. 

The province has three universities and dozens of institutions that offer apprenticeship programs. It also has nine regional technical colleges and 50 private vocational schools, including Chinook School Division and others.

The province is one of Canada’s most important agricultural centres and produces over 30% of Canada’s grains. It also has a very diverse minerals industry, which employs a large percentage of the population. 

Additionally, the oil and gas industry has become a significant contributor to the province’s GDP and an essential immigration source. Although Saskatchewan is considered one of Canada’s quietest provinces, it is also the sunniest, with an average of 2,000 to 2,500 hours of sunshine annually.

Below are some cities in Saskatchewan that reflect the province’s educational diversity and that are home to important partnered institutions:
