Map of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan
Saskatoon is in the Prairies Ecozone. This ecozone is known for it's flat, rural, wheat-and oil, and cold land. The Prairies ecozone is part of the Interior Plains of Canada. A few deciduous trees grow in Saskatoon. Although participation increases towards the east, the high winds make this ecozone very dry.
Types of Geography
The province of Saskatchewan is in the Great Plains region. It lies in two important natural regions, the Canadian Shield (north) and the Interior Plains (south). Land is built up by tectonic forces, such as volcanoes and the collision of plates. Since Saskatchewan is half between the Canadian Shield and the Interior Plains, Saskatoon is in the Interior Plains region. The Canadian Shield has a lot of rocks whereas the Interior Plains is very flat with deep, fertile soil. The Interior Plains is mostly treeless with grass and herbs.
Physical Geography: Landform Region
Physical: Climate Region
This climate is representing the monthly weather in Saskatoon. As you can see, the winters are very cold whereas the summers are warm. The highest weather is 20 degrees in July and the lowest weather is -15 degrees in January.
Human Geography: Population Statistics
Estimated Population: 248, 700 (2013)
Population Density: 1, 479.0 cm2 http://www.statcan.gc.ca/pub/91-214-x/2009000/i004-eng.htm
Human: Cultural Diversity
Saskatoon has always been a society with many different backgrounds of people and it seems like it is going to continue on like this. 93% speak English, 6% speak French and the last 1% is other. The pull factors of this city would be the fact it has a high standard for living which attracts immigrants. Also, the minimum wage is $9.25. The city of Saskatoon has the most bridges per Capital in Canada. With its growing diverse economy and diverse community, the world's gap is bridging.
Saskatoon's climate is Continental since to the lack of bodies of water around it. Things that affect the climate are latitude and elevation. Latitude is that the temperature cools the further you get from the equator. Elevation is the height above sea level. When there's an increase in elevation, the temperature decreases. Like climbing a mountain perhaps. Once you get higher, the temperature seems to get cooler,
Human: Urban Land Use
The Urban Land uses of every city contains of; transportation (roads, buses...), residential (houses, apartments...), industrial (factories...), commercial (grocery stores, shopping malls...), institutional (schools, hospitals...), and recreational (parks, playgrounds...).
Residential in Saskatoon
The Planning and Development Branch has developed a number of projects and programs to guarantee the residential neighborhoods with maintained community efficiency over the long run.
Commercial in Saskatoon
The Planning and Development Branch are looking for ways to attract people from different cities, provinces, or even countries to come to their city. Ways they have came up with are more attractions such as big shopping malls, incredible movie theaters, and more. Having more commercial land use, can cause a greater affect of human activity in their city.
Industrial in Saskatoon
The Official Community Plan contains four industrial land use designations:
1. Business Park, which is a high quality business and industrial park environment.
2. Light Industrial, which is mainstream industrial development that does not create land use conflicts in the normal course of operations.
3. Heavy Industrial: which includes manufacturing and processing, and has the potential to create land use conflicts in the normal course of operations.
4. Environmental Industrial Park: which includes the safe storage, handling and processing of dangerous or hazardous products

Economic Geography: Basic Industry
The two main basic industries in Saskatoon are wheat farming and oil. As mentioned before, the prairies ecozone is known for its wheat and oil. This attracts people towards Saskatoon, such as farmers. The wheat there is one of the best in Canada, as well as their oil. The city of Saskatoon has been associated with potash, oil and agriculture. Since there growth rate in Saskatoon was 4.2 last year, that shows how good the agriculture is there.
Economic: Main Tertiary Employment
The main form of Tertiary employment in Saskatoon are the most important, apart from the basic industries, for human interaction. Things such as Health Care and Education would be considered important and would be looked for in a city my family and I would move to. The main Tertiary employment would be Saskatoon Health Region (11,000) and University of Saskatoon (7,170). Another would be Saskatoon Institute of Applied Science and Technology (2,150).
Economic: Secondary Industries
A secondary industry in Saskatoon would be manufacturing. What about manufacturing? The workers in that category, manufacture potash oil. The location factor for this industry would be in Saskatoon because they wouldn't send the oil across the world, they would keep it there for themselves. It also attracts people to Saskatoon. Another secondary industry would be construction. Almost every city has construction going on somewhere. For example, Saskatoon is known for its bridges; it took construction workers to build those bridges in Saskatoon.
