A PROFILE OF SOUTHEAST SASKATCHEWAN
With feverish activity in the oil patch and a major construction project for SaskPower, the economy in the Southeast Economic Region did well from 2009 to 2014.
  • Over the five years the population and employment have grown by an average of 1.3% and 2.3% per year respectively.
  • Incomes are 10% above the provincial average and increasing more quickly.
  • Residents are more likely than other Saskatchewan residents to report that they are in good physical and mental health and they are more satisfied with “life in general”.
The economic drivers will not be present to the same extent in the short term so the region will not do as well in the next few years as it has in the past.


CAPITAL EXPENDITURE SURVEY
The much-delayed release of capital investment intentions for 2015 shows that new capital investment in the province will decline by 13% this year. This is the largest decline among the provinces. The drop was mainly but not exclusively in the resource sector.
