 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.

Number of New Attainable Housing Units

“500 new units annually across the attainable housing continuum” measures the City’s success in developing a mix of affordable housing for ownership and rental throughout Saskatoon to address basic needs.

How are we doing?   

The City of Saskatoon has supported an average of 400 units of attainable housing annually over the last four years including 142 units in 2018.
