This Month's Issue


A number of economic measures suggest that the Saskatchewan economy has started to recover. Capital investment is an important one. Investment by businesses and governments is expected to increase by 3% in 2017 after two consecutive years of double-digit declines. Both the declines and subsequent recovery are concentrated in the private sector and in the construction of fixed assets rather than the purchase of movable ones.
Saskatchewan Economic Recovery


Fewer Saskatchewan residents reported a charitable contribution on their 2015 income tax form than in the past. The 22% who do contribute are giving a smaller proportion of their income.
