If you’re moving to Saskatoon be prepared for extreme weather -hot summer and cold winter. It is a river city with many outdoor activities. Also known as The Bridge City.

It’s very cold in the winter, so good winter gear is important. Many people hibernate in the winter making it important for residents to have indoor hobbies like reading and board games they love. It does heat up in the Summer, though so keep your tank tops and shorts handy!

If you are moving to Saskatoon, you will need to be used to Winter, but the short Summers are amazing.

Saskatoon is a great place, but it has some definite flaws! The very biggest of which is the bus system., our public transportation is simply frustrating and altogether lackluster so, be sure you have a car if you decide to move here. It really is a wonderful place though all in all! My favourite thing about living in fact is that on any given night I can look up and see the stars. The sky is always changing and stunning views can’t be taken for granted in our urban day and age.

Saskatoon is beautiful with the amazing bridges and uniqueness it contains. It has a gorgeous river that runs through it with an incredible scenery. The city however is small and the buildings are not that tall, but the city has so much character within it allowing the city to stand out.

Saskatoon is a great city full of fun and friendly people. It has an excellent food scene, with new restaurants popping up all the time. It’s built along the Saskatchewan River, and is the City of Bridges. Saskatoon is a great place and enjoy amazing prairie sunsets and northern lights.

Saskatoon is a wonderful city. It is a safe community, filled with natural beauty and welcoming people. We offer an exciting and vibrant local food scene, and are home to many music festivals throughout the year. Just be sure that you are someone who enjoys and can take advantage of a long winter!
