“Land of the Living Skies” – there is no better way to describe this great province than through their provincial slogan. As a prairie province, many view Saskatchewan as being completely flat. Although this is largely the case, Saskatchewan still has a dramatic contrast between the prairies and their boreal forests.
With a population of 1.13 million, the entire province has less people than the city of Toronto with the majority of the residents living in the southern half of the province. An interesting characteristic of the province is that it has over 250,000 kilometres of road surface, which is more than any other Canadian province – 197,000 km of these roads are dirt and another 5,600 km are gravel roads.
