According to a Statistics Canada population report released today, Saskatchewan has passed the one million mark for the first time since 2001. The province’s population was estimated to have reached 1,003,300 by October 1, 2007 an increase of 6,400 people since July, making it the country’s fastest growing province. According to the report, the provincial population has been “on the rebound” since the fourth quarter of 2006 when it bottomed out at 986,900 people.
Interprovincial migration accounted for two-thirds of the growth and was primarily fueled by people who returned to Saskatchewan from Alberta.
Who doesn’t know someone who moved back to Saskatchewan this year?
