Saskatchewan's largest city is a four-season destination and has gained a reputation as a great place to both live and visit. The name Saskatoon derives from a native word for a berry growing along the river banks called missaskquahtoomina.
Located along the South Saskatchewan River, known as a city of bridges, it leads to cultural sophistication and wealth of Art Nouveau architecture, giving a nickname as the Paris of the Prairies.
A young, vibrant and entrepreneurial demographic energises this city with exciting new things to see and do. Well supported by a history of know-how and innovation, Saskatoon celebrates throughout the year rich culture through a continuous line-up of festivals, events, performing arts, and a fine selection of crafts and fine arts.
