Saskatoon area population predicted to reach 460,333 by 2032

For three consecutive years, the Saskatoon census metropolitan area has been Canada’s fastest growing area showing steady growth and adding about 26,000 people to our numbers during that time. A new projection released by Saskatoon city officials this week predicts population in this area will expand to reach 460,333 by 2032 while the population within city boundaries spikes to 387,742. Most recent estimates place it at roughly 239,000 as of December 31, 2012.


The projections assume that growth in the area will continue at the same pace over that period of time. It’s speculative, at best, but we’re certainly on a roll with some good momentum behind us. Short term prospects look good for a continued expansion of our population base.


Accommodating that growth will require development of 15 new neighbourhoods and 60,000 households, according to comments attributed to Allan Wallace, Saskatoon’s manager of planning and development in a recent Star Phoenix story.


We’ve got lots to think about and discuss as a community in the years ahead. Managing growth isn’t a problem that we have a lot of experience at in Saskatchewan. While there will be growing pains and challenges to overcome it’s kind of nice to be planning for growth rather than decline.

Norm has written a weekly review of the Saskatoon real estate market for more than 650 consecutive weeks which may make him the most consistent industry blogger in the world.

Norm is known for his passion for technology and can most often be found exploring and experimenting with the next big thing in real estate marketing. He was the first Saskatoon real estate agent to promote a home online and has been an early adopter of new technologies ever since. “Everything about this business has changed over the past 20 years, and it will happen again in the next ten. An open mind and a curious attitude are all that’s needed to continue to find new ways to serve our clients by delivering a faster, smoother, worry-free transaction,” says Norm.

In his spare time, Norm enjoys Crossfit and cycling, some years accumulating over 2,000 kilometres on the road. He’s a strong supporter of the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation and enjoys raising funds by joining fun, fitness-related initiatives like the Grouse Grind for Shelter. In 2015, he trekked the Peruvian Andes to Machu Picchu. In 2017 he walked the southern highlands of Iceland across mountains, sand, snow, ice, lava fields and forest for seven days. Collectively those initiatives raised over a million dollars for Canadian women's shelters.
