Saskatchewan has one of the fastest growing populations in Canada. The province has the food, fuel and fertilizer that the world needs, and its abundant natural resources place it at an advantage in various economic climates, helping it ride out global economic cycles.

Manufacturing is an important part of Saskatchewan’s economy. The sector accounts for seven per cent of the province’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and is currently experiencing one of the highest growth rates in the country. In the 10-year period from 2007 to 2017, Saskatchewan’s manufacturing shipments increased by 53 per cent, totaling $16 billion in 2017.
