All of the Job Growth Also in the Cities
Because Employment Intensive Industries are Urban Based
Cities are Critical for Continued Population and Employment Growth
Saskatchewan’s recent success is due to both rural and urban economies:
Exports originate in rural Sask. Most of the main supporting services, employment and housing growth is in the cities
Sustaining the interdependency between rural and urban Sask is vital to Saskatchewan’s continued growth via:
sustaining competitive resource industries, and Growing the cities since cities are the primary destinations to attract population, employment growth and investments in high value added production.
Higher Value Added Needed—Cities Critical
So Why The Need for Regional Cooperation? Sustaining Saskatchewan’s Growth and Competitiveness
Sustained Growth is not Guaranteed Pursuing Opportunities, Addressing Challenges
Cities Have the Ability to Become Globally Competitive at 500,000
Cities of 500,000 or more have avoided outmigration in the Northern Plains region of North America
Cities become regional and national ‘engines of growth’ as they attract economic activity.
Other than Atlantic Canada, Saskatchewan is the only Canadian province without a city of 500,000.
Sustaining Saskatchewan’s growth requires larger cities.
Challenges to Maintaining Growth
Business leaders see four major challenges
Increasing access to skilled labour and professionals Improving growth enabling infrastructure Addressing the rising cost of living and doing business Continuing to improve and evolve the policy environment
Addressing these challenges is largely an urban based agenda because of the role of cities in:
Attracting skilled trades persons and professionals to Saskatchewan Providing infrastructure and services to support business growth Creating local economies with sufficient scale to support growing business.

Study Findings – Attitude is Everything Findings: Unprecedented levels of growth and investment A material shift in public attitudes: ‘positive about the future’ Businesses are planning extensive developments and investments Cities capturing all the growth; larger cities are key to sustaining growth Only larger cities are able to attract and retain new skilled professionals Opportunities: Add more value to resources: manufacturing, processing, technologies, services Grow the population: Increase immigration, greater participation of First Nations Sustain the right policy environment: trade, taxation, training, promotion Barriers to Continued Growth: Shortages of: infrastructure, skilled labor, value added production, cultural industries Need more growth of cultural industries Fragmentation of governance, insufficient capacity of institutions
