THE STATE OF SASKATCHEWAN CITIES
One of the important findings from a report prepared by the Johnson Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy is the extent to which the recent strong performance of the economy has been concentrated in the cities. Virtually all of the potash, crude oil, uranium, and farms are in rural Saskatchewan but the cities have dominated recent growth. With 60% of the population, the eight largest urban centres have, for example:
  • 77% of the population growth from 2006 to 2011;
  • 84% of recent immigrants in 2011;
  • 77% of the new housing starts in 2012; and
  • all of the employment growth from 2006 to 2011.

RRSP CONTRIBUTIONS IN 2012
In 2012, 24.7% of Saskatchewan’s 773,370 tax filers made a contribution to their RRSP. The average contribution was $5,540.
