Business – Markets – Consumers
Located at the centre of western Canada, Saskatoon is strategically placed for companies selling goods within Canada and around the world. As Saskatoon is the largest centre in central and northern Saskatchewan, it is known as a “Hub City” inasmuch as it is a major centre for purchasing goods for retail and wholesale distributors.
Over three-hundred thousand consumers live within one hundred kilometres (62 miles) of the city of Saskatoon, and over one million people live in Saskatchewan. Western Canada boasts over 9 million people and is growing, due to a strong western Canadian economy.
The Neighbourhood Profiles publication from the City of Saskatoon contains a wealth of demographic data for each residential neighbourhood in Saskatoon, such as how many people own houses, average income of residents, park space per resident, ethnic diversity, and political participation. Used by all types of people, from residents to business owners to community organizations, the data in Neighbourhood Profiles can help people plan for the future or just provide a snapshot of a neighbourhood.
