About Saskatchewan

Thinking about Studying in Saskatchewan?

Saskatchewan is located in central Canada and is the epitome of a prairie province. With just over one million residents, most live in the capital, Regina, or the largest city, Saskatoon. With a growing economy and dedication to attracting young minds from across Canada and around the world, more and more students are considering the province as an option for post-secondary education.

Similar to its bordering prairie provinces on either side, agriculture plays a large role in the economy of the province. However, the province is also becoming more known for oil and gas industries as well as finance.

The province is known for its outdoor activities such as fresh water fishing, outdoor adventures, wildlife and provincial parks. Unlike any other in the province, Saskatchewan is known for its passion for the Saskatchewan Roughriders, the provinces CFL Franchise. If you enjoy the outdoors, this is a great place to call home.

Education Options

Post-secondary education is overseen by the Saskatchewan Ministry of Advanced Education, Employment, and Labour. With more than 25 colleges and universities that call Saskatchewan home, and considering its population, there are lots of post-secondary options for domestic and international students to consider.

There are a few larger universities, but community colleges outweigh universities when it comes to type of education. There are also a large number of seminary and catholic colleges in the province. More colleges in the province offers a more intimate classroom setting and allows students to get more hands on learning experience as well as the personal attention as student need  to complete their degree or diploma.

Here are some of the most notable school in Saskatchewan: Universities include:

  • University of Regina
  • University of Saskatchewan
  • First Nations University of Canada

Colleges include:

  • Cumberland College
  • Parkland Regional College
  • Great Plains College
  • Western Academy Broadcasting College
  • Saskatchewan Institute of Applied Science and Technology
