Saskatoon, The Paris of the Prairies
Divided into east and west sides by the South Saskatchewan River, located on the Trans-Canada Yellowhead Highway about 800 km west of Winnipeg, 500 km east of Edmonton, and about 205 km north of Regina on Saskatchewan Highway 11 sits Saskatchewan’s largest city, Saskatoon.
Home of the University of Saskatchewan, the city of Saskatoon has 65 neighborhoods in 9 Suburban Development Areas (SDAs): Core Neighborhood Area in the center with University Heights, Holmwood, Lakewood, Nutana to the east of the river and Confederation, Blairmore, North West Industrial, and Lawson to the west of the river.
The Saskatoon CMA, including Martensville, Warman, and Delisle has a population of around 325,000 and is growing at about 2% per year with roughly 85% of that growth coming from international immigration. The top first-languages of Sasktonians other than English in order are Filipino, German, Mandarin, French, Ukrainian, and Urdu.
Wanuskewin Heritage Park, a National Historic SIte of Canada and nominated to UNESCO the World Heritage List, a gathering place 2.5 km north of the city has nineteen archaeological sites dating across the last six thousand years.
The name Saskatoon comes from the Cree word for the Saskatoon berry that is common in the area. Originally founded in 1882 by the Temperance Colonization Society from Ontario as a utopian, alcohol-free agricultural colony, the lack of a railroad, difficulty navigating the South Saskatchewan river, and the Northwest Rebellion of 1885, limited settlers to less than 100 by 1891. With the railroad arriving in 1890, the settlements amalgamating to form a city, and expectations of more civic development, Saskatoon became the fastest growing city in Canada by 1906.
Grains, pulses, livestock, oil and gas, potash, uranium, and lumber power Saskatoon’s economy. About 65% of the world’s recoverable reserves of the fertilizer potash are located in the Saskatoon region.
From the Business Profile Annual Report provided by the City of Saskatoon for 2019, there were about 12,000 businesses broken down to 79% in the services-producing sector with the top sectors being Trade (wholesale and retail) and Construction. 42% of all licensed businesses in 2019 were Home Based.
The climate of Saskatoon is cold, semi-arid with warm summers and long, cold winters. The frost free growing season lasts from late May to mid September. On the shortest day of the year, the sun rises at 9:13 am and sets at 4:56 pm. The longest day of the year is 16 hours and 45 minutes with the sun setting at 9:31 pm. At 52 degrees North, Saskatoon has about the same latitude of Amsterdam and Berlin.
Two notable people who grew up in the city nicknamed ‘Paris of the Prairies’ for its eight bridges crossing the South Saskatchewan River are “Mr. Hockey” Gordie Howe and singer Joni Mitchell.

SASKATOON WEBSITE DESIGN
We’ll build you a new website or fix up your old one for free!
Personal, friendly service from people in Canada who you can understand – and who understand you!
Who We Are
Our small, friendly Saskatoon web design team has been building, managing, hosting, and marketing websites since 1999. In Saskatoon we work out of the Wall Street Common, a collaborative workspace in Saskatoon’s historic Warehouse District.
We built our website design service for small businesses that are busy enough as it is, usually don’t have a lot of technical web expertise, and don’t need a complicated, time-consuming, and expensive boutique experience – and don’t have the budget to pay thousands of dollars anyway.
Who our customers are
Our Saskatoon web design customers are in Saskatoon and throughout Central and Northern Saskatchewan including Delisle, Denare Beach, Lloydminster, Lucky Lake, Meadow Lake, Muenster, and Prince Albert – in every type of business and industry including agricultural equipment rebuilding, rural municipalities, sandblasting & painting, government, health and wellness, irrigation, resorts, restaurants, windows & doors, business consulting, home care, awnings & boat covers, garden centers, butcher shop & catering, cleaning services, scrap yard & recycling, and cash registers & scales.
What We Do
We build beautiful websites and take care of everything year-round. Our web design customers can just call, email, or text with updates, questions, or for help. Then we take care of everything – fast. Website updates are usually taken care of in a day or two. If you are in Saskatoon, Central, or Northern Saskatchewan, or anywhere across Canada we can help.
Security, Speed, and Backups
Once we have your new web design up and running, we take care of all of the important and often critical technical and search engine issues. Our Managed WordPress Hosting service means your website will load extremely fast, be monitored 24/7 for security, backed-up nightly, and we take care of all of the WordPress, theme, and plugin software updates for you. Domain name management and email accounts are also included.
How it Works
We’ll build you a new website design from scratch or we’ll rebuild any old, broken, ugly, out-of-date, or just too expensive website. The process can take as little as a week. Then we help our web design customers year round with website hosting, email account management and support, domain name renewal, and any updates and web design changes they have.
Optimized for Search
For web marketing and SEO, we take care of optimizing each web page of your website for the phrases that your potential customers are searching for, and we make sure your website is sending out all of the local signals the search engines are looking for whether your customers are in Saskatoon or around the world.
We’ll build your new website for free and our ongoing service is only $65/month when you pre-pay for the year. This includes your domain name and 5 matching email addresses, 12 hours of website updates, help, and support just a call, email, text, or click away.
We Make It Easy - and fast
When you have something to add or update for your website, you can easily update your website yourself (we’ll show you how), or like what most of our customers do, you can just call our Saskatoon web design team or email your updates and we’ll take care of it – usually within a day or two.
