Saskatoon, Saskatchewan

“Canada’s Economy and Future Prosperity”

The Banff Forum is excited to hold the retreat in Saskatchewan for the first time. Saskatchewan is one of Canada’s fastest growing economies – it was recently forecasted that Saskatoon and Regina will lead all Canadian cities in 2013 with economic growth of 5.2% and 5% respectively. Saskatchewan’s population recently hit 1.1 million for the first time, growing by more than a hundred thousand people in just six years. Saskatoon also has an increasingly diverse population with a large First Nations and Metis population and a significant number of new immigrants to Canada choosing to settle in the province.

Diane Francis will keynote the Global Business Forum conference.
