Saskatoon population drops by 2000 since January 2007?

Saskatoon’s population has seen a decrease of 2,000 people since January 2007 according to an estimate just released by a Toronto analytics firm. Generation 5 provides population estimates for the City of Saskatoon between census periods.


According to the Star Phoenix, “The firm uses census figures as a starting point, adjusted by databases of consumer spending, home sales, and address information to arrive at its estimates.


Information from various sources suggests Saskatoon’s population grew from 202,340 in 2006 to 214,034 by the beginning of 2007, and receded to 212,000 by mid-2008.


Anyone else have any thoughts on how these measures could lead to the conclusion of a population drop, given that 2007 produced a record number of homes sales, and Saskatoon has been the nation’s leader for consumer spending?

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.
