Search is on for next Saskatchewanderer

Will be 10-year of program

With nearly 100,000 social media fans across Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, the Saskatchewanderer is a ‘must follow’ for residents and tourists. As the program approaches its tenth year, the search is on for the new Saskatchewanderer to promote our province to the world in 2020.

“The Saskatchewanderer program brings attention to a range of industries and businesses in the province and highlights why Saskatchewan is a great place to operate a business, build a career and raise a family,” Minister Responsible for Tourism Saskatchewan and Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Gene Makowsky said. “I am pleased this program continues to be a successful and effective marketing tool, showcasing all our province offers.”


Zane Buchanan, the 2019 Saskatchewanderer, brought his gift of writing and storytelling to the position. As a born Saskatchewanian, who was living in Toronto, he jumped at the opportunity to return to the province to become the 2019 Saskatchewanderer. Throughout the year, Zane showcased the province with fresh eyes, often commenting about how proud he was of his home province.


“My term as the Saskatchewanderer is unlike anything I have done or will do in my life,” Zane said. “I saw and learned more than most people get to in a lifetime – and all within the confines of the province I (now more than ever) am proud to call home. Although I'm sad to be passing the torch, I'm looking forward to taking the perspective gained from this experience and applying it to whatever else comes my way.”


In 2020, the program will be refreshed and will align with the Plan for Growth to build strong communities, families and a stronger Saskatchewan by focusing on small business, investment and entrepreneurs in the tourism industry.


Each applicant is required to shoot, edit and submit their own original video explaining why they should become the next Saskatchewanderer. Applications will be accepted until noon on Friday, December 20, 2019 at
