Saskatchewan has a Growth Plan for the next decade. (Click here to read the full report)

The plan is a roadmap for a growing province of 1.4 million people and a strong economy with 100,000 more jobs.

The purpose of growth and our government’s Growth Plan is to build a better quality of life for Saskatchewan people – to build strong communities and strong families – and to grow a stronger Saskatchewan now, and for the next decade.

Over the next decade, business and investment growth will create stronger communities, while adding value to the products we export around the world will support the growth of new industries and new investment in our province.

Technology and innovation will be a catalyst for growth in our core economic sectors and growing diversification of our economy. Growth will create new jobs and more opportunities for young people to realize their future in our province, while attracting skilled and entrepreneurial newcomers from around the world.

These are just some of the benefits of a growing province over the next decade.

Since 2007, the benefits of population and economic growth in the province have provided the ability to make substantial investments in infrastructure and services that Saskatchewan people expect in their communities. Strong growth has also provided the means to invest in better supports for seniors and vulnerable people across the province while reducing taxes and making life more affordable for Saskatchewan families.

While growth brings challenges, it also provides new opportunities to build on the investments that have been undertaken since 2007. Recognizing the importance of ensuring investments are affordable within a balanced budget, the Government of Saskatchewan will continue to invest in our communities and families to improve their quality of life as the province and economy grows over the next decade.
