Saskatchewan Real Estate

Welcome to the Canada Real Estate Directory

Saskatchewan is crossed by a vast belt of flat prairie land, Saskatchewan is, with Alberta and Manitoba, one of the Prairie provinces. Once solely an agricultural economy, it has diversified with the development of its mineral resources. Saskatchewan still supplies 28 percent of Canada's grain production. It is rich in minerals, including potash, uranium, coal, oil and natural gas. Regina is the capital of Saskatchewan, and Saskatoon is the largest city. A 2012 real estate survey has estimated the population of Saskatchewan at 1,033,381.

More about Saskatchewan

Saskatchewan normally devotes about one-half of its cropland to wheat. Most of the wheat is grown in the prairies and adjacent parklands. Canola, a source of vegetable oil, is Saskatchewan's second most valuable crop. Barley is an important secondary grain, particularly in the parklands. Oats and rye are minor grain crops. A variety of feed and fodder crops, including hay, are grown.

Livestock raising is important in Saskatchewan, accounting for about one-sixth of agricultural sales. Beef cattle predominate, but hogs have increased in importance because of growing urban markets domestically and internationally. Cattle were brought into southwestern Saskatchewan from the Great Plains of the United States in the 1880s. Since then, livestock raising has become associated with grain farming in all agricultural areas of the province.

Saskatchewan's wheat farmers depend upon selling their vast output of grain on the world market. Huge amounts of wheat are exported to countries such as the United States, Mexico, South Korea, Iran, Brazil, Japan, and China. Most of the province's grain is shipped through Winnipeg and the Great Lakes. Some wheat is also sent by rail to the port of Churchill, Manitoba, on Hudson Bay.

Of the province's lumber shipments, almost all is softwood; the principal species were spruce and jack pine. Wood processing is important at Hudson Bay, Glaslyn, Big River, and Meadow Lake. There is a pulp and paper mill at Prince Albert.

Saskatchewan ranks third among the provinces in non-renewable resource production in Canada. Non-renewable resources include all minerals, oil, and natural gas. Uranium and other metallic minerals are produced from the Canadian Shield in northern Saskatchewan. Potash, coal, and other industrial minerals are produced in southern Saskatchewan.

Saskatchewan is the largest uranium producing jurisdiction in the world and accounted for all of Canadian production in 1998. Uranium is currently produced from three mines in the province and is sold to utilities in North America, Europe, and East Asia. Two gold mines operate in Saskatchewan.

Potash is used primarily in fertilizers, and about 25 percent of the world production comes from Saskatchewan. Potash is the largest mining sector in the province and is produced from 10 mines spread across southern Saskatchewan. It is sold within Canada and to the United States, Japan, China, India, Brazil, and countries in Southeast Asia. Other minerals produced in Saskatchewan include salt, sodium sulfate, calcium chloride, and clays.

Saskatchewan is the second largest oil-producing province in Canada. Heavy and light crude oil are produced from the Lloydminster, Kindersley-Kerrobert, Swift Current, and Weyburn-Estevan areas. Crude oil is sold within the province and to buyers in Alberta, eastern Canada, and the United States. The province is the third largest natural gas producing province in Canada. The main producing areas and reserves are along the western boundary of Saskatchewan, in the Beacon Hill, Kindersley, and Hatton areas. The natural gas is sold within the province and to buyers in eastern Canada and the United States.

Industry has developed slowly in Saskatchewan, and it is much less important than farming or mining. Food processing has long been the main industry. Especially important are slaughtering and meatpacking and the production of beer, soft drinks, and animal feed. Other major products include newspapers and magazines, agricultural implements, agricultural chemicals, commercial printed materials, ready-mix concrete, and machine shop products. Regina and Saskatoon are the principal manufacturing centers.
