The settlers, led by John Lake
The Saskatoon area has been inhabited for more than 600 years. Its name is derived from “mis-sask-quah-toomina,” the Cree Indian name for a local indigenous berry. You’ll still find jams and pies made from those berries, a local specialty.
Not until the 1880s did the first European settlers arrive here. The year was1883 when a group of 35 Methodists from Toronto wanted to escape the liquor trade in their city. So they examined the area in the rapidly-growing prairie region of Saskatchewan and found that it would make an excellent location to settle their “dry” community, based on the ideals of the Temperance League.
As of 2005, the civic government of Saskatoon claimed a population of approximately 220,000, growing at an annual rate of 0.62 per cent. Saskatoon is a city of younger people. According to the 2001 census, some 1 in 5 people, or 20.6 percent of the population consists of youths under the age of 14, while those over 65 consitute only 11.8 percent of the population. The median age of Saskatoon residents is 34.4 years of age, three years younger than Canada as a whole.
