Saskatoon is a hidden gem in Western Canada. Today. I’m going to give you the top five reasons why you should move to Saskatoon. I recently moved back to Saskatoon and I’ve helped many other families move here over the past year.
Saskatoon Saskatchewan is the “Paris of the Prairies”, also referred to as the “Bridge City”.
It’s a fantastic city with so much to offer. In this podcast, I’ll cover all things, real estate stories, lifestyle, and more that make Saskatoon so awesome. I’m Tim Bomboir and this is the Moving Back to Saskatoon podcast.
First up and maybe for a lot of people, the number one reason to move to Saskatoon is affordability.
Saskatoon has a lower cost of living than many other major Canadian cities, which means you get more bang for your buck. The real estate market is very affordable, making it a great place for first-time home buyers or those looking to upgrade their living space.
And with the strong economy in Saskatoon, you can be sure that your investment in a home here is a wise one.
Second outdoor activity. Saskatoon has a wide range of outdoor activities to enjoy the Meewsin is a natural park that runs over 105 kilometers along both sides of the river, winding under the bridges and through the beautifully landscaped parks and natural areas, residents and visitors flock to the trail to cycle, jog, stroll, or simply gaze at the scenery. You can go hiking, biking, fishing, kayaking, and canoeing.
And in the winter you can go cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and ice skating. Enjoy the activities without having to leave the city and enjoy the river and cityscape views.
Third cultural events. Saskatoon has a thriving arts and cultural scene with a variety of festivals and events throughout the year from the Saskatoon jazz festival to the Shakespeare on the Saskatchewan festival, and the Saskatoon fringe festival. There’s always something happening in the city. The Remai Modern art gallery and the Persephone theater are also popular attractions for those who enjoy the arts.
Fourth, the strong economy. Saskatoon’s economy is diverse and growing, driven by agriculture, mining, and technology. The city is home to a number of major employers, including Cameco and Nutrien. The University of Saskatchewan also contributes to the city’s economy and provides a steady stream of talent to the local workforce with a low unemployment rate and a high job creation rate. You can be sure that you will find a job in Saskatoon that suits your skills.
Finally. The welcoming community. Saskatoon is known for its friendly and welcoming community. The city has a diverse population and residents are proud of their multicultural heritage.
The community is also very supportive with a variety of volunteer opportunities and community events throughout the year. And if you’re a parent, you’ll be happy to know that Saskatoon is home to some of the best schools in the province, and it’s a great place to raise a family.
