 COVID-19 Response for Saskatoon Residents

On March 19, 2020, the City decided to close public access to City Hall and all City buildings, including fire stations, leisure facilities, attractions and Saskatoon Public Library locations. While we are closed to the public, our business operations continue to ensure core services for our residents as much as possible. Public transit currently remains operational.

Crime Rates

“Decrease overall crime rates by 5% annually over the previous five-year average” measures success in increasing public safety in our homes, on our streets, and in our overall community.

How are we doing?

According to StatsCan there were 9,965 total Saskatoon criminal code violations (excluding traffic violations) per 100,000 population in 2018. Saskatoon's total criminal code violations (excluding traffic violations) per 100,000 population has decreased 2.2% when comparing the 2014-2018 and 2013-2017 averages.
