LANGUAGE

Saskatchewan Declining Productivity
English is still the dominant language in Saskatchewan; 89.1% residents speak only English at home and English is the sole mother tongue for 82.4% of residents. The dominance is declining, however because of the growth in the number of immigrants to the province.

There are fewer French speakers in Saskatchewan than in other provinces and bilingualism in Canada's two official languages is rare.

Depending on the measure, the most language diversity is in Regina, Saskatoon, and Lloydminster.
