Various indigenous groups have inhabited Saskatchewan for thousands of years. Saskatchewan was first explored by Europeans in 1690, and it was settled in 1774.

Of all the Canadian provinces, Saskatchewan receives the most hours of sunshine. It is positioned far away from any major body of water. Because of this, as well as the fact that it holds a northerly latitude, it has a warm summer, which corresponds with its humid continental climate in the eastern and central parts of the province. Summer temperatures in Saskatchewan can get quite hot, and sometimes reach above 100 degrees Fahrenheit during daylight hours.

The economy of Saskatchewan has historically been associated with agriculture. In more recent times, increasing diversification has resulted in the province’s development of thriving forestry, mining, fishing and other industries. A large portion of Canada’s grain is grown in the province.

George Tkalych grew up in the prairies in Saskatchewan. He is a renowned former Head and Neck (Ears, Nose, and Throat) Surgeon who has paved the way for innovation in his field. He ran a successful practice for 32 years.
