Saskatchewan

Situated between Alberta and Manitoba, Saskatchewan is the middle child of Canada’s three Prairie Provinces. Like Alberta, Saskatchewan is entirely landlocked and is the only Canadian province whose borders were drawn without a single geographical feature (river, ocean, lake) determining a boundary. Saskatchewan is a Cree Indian word meaning “swift river.” It refers to the Saskatchewan River, which sweeps down from the Rockies and across the province. Saskatchewan’s prairie was once the roaming ground for bison and the Natives who counted on them for their survival. Today, much of the prairie has given way to agriculture and grazing land. Saskatchewan produces more than half of Canada’s wheat, and much of its rye, oats, canola, flax, and barley. Saskatchewan’s largest city is named after the small, sweet, purple Saskatoon berries that grow wild in the province. Natives combined them with dried strips of meat, pounding them into something called ‘pemmican.’ The northern half of Saskatchewan is boreal forest and lake country, offering tremendous hunting and fishing for caribou, deer, grouse, boar, walleye, northern Pike, white fish, and trout.
