Tourism Careers

Working in tourism means different things to different people. For some, it means flexible, part-time and seasonal jobs. For others, tourism means a full-time position and a rewarding career.

Saskatchewan has an impressive wealth of tourism resources, ranging from nearly 100,000 lakes and limitless opportunities for outdoor recreation, to an enviable parks system of two national parks, 36 provincial parks and almost 80 regional parks, to signature attractions that tell the stories of Saskatchewan’s history, culture and people.

Year round, communities throughout the province – large and small, urban and rural – host a flurry of activities, events and celebrations. Festivals, national and international sports championships, and large conferences put Saskatchewan on the map as a place that knows how to host a successful, memorable event.

Tourism is an export industry, injecting $723 million in export dollars annually to the local economy and stimulating growth throughout the province. 

Saskatchewan’s tourism economy shows travel expenditures of $2.17 billion in 2019, and more than 11.8 million visits were made to and within the province.

A vibrant tourism sector committed to product and service excellence reflects a positive image for a destination and contributes to the success of other businesses. Saskatchewan has approximately 3,000 organizations offering 4,200 tourism products and services. Tourism businesses and activities provide employment to 71,100 Saskatchewan residents, more than 11 percent of the working population. As well, tourism encourages entrepreneurship – 95 per cent of tourism and tourism-related businesses are small- or medium-sized companies, many of which are independently owned and operated.
