Located in the western part of Canada, Saskatchewan is bordered by Manitoba, Alberta, the Northwest Territories and the United States.

Saskatchewan's population stands at a little less than a million people, or 3.6 per cent of Canada's population. The people of Saskatchewan come from a variety of ethnic backgrounds, which is why the provincial motto is "From many peoples, strength". The province is also known for its flat stretches of land, vast skies and beautiful sunsets.
