If you love spending time in the great outdoors, Saskatchewan has plenty to do. Home to two national parks, miles of desert-like sand dunes, and thousands of freshwater lakes, you’ll be busy all year long! Hiking, swimming, skating, camping — the possibilities are endless, and with a well-established community of outdoor lovers, you’ll never be lonely in your adventures. 

2. The people are ridiculously nice.

3. You might actually be able to afford a home there!

With the median house price in Saskatchewan just over $280,000, your dreams of home-ownership may not be as distant as you thought! BRB, looking for a house in Saskatchewan immediately. 

4. It’s home to Canada’s longest running multi-day music festival.

5. Traffic? What’s that?

6. You can live out your farm-life fantasy.

7. You can literally light up your life.

8. It’s an ideal playground for roadtrippers.

9. The cotton candy sunsets will blow your mind.
