What makes Saskatoon unique and fun? Find out firsthand while at NASPEM 2022!

With so much to offer, Saskatoon is one of Canada's most talked-about destinations. As it thrives economically and excels as a forward-thinking metropolis, the door is always open for discovery. It is the place to experience local eateries, bustling nightlife, river trails and other outdoor spaces as well as cultural institutions and museums.

With over 65 annual events (40 in the summer alone), there is no shortage of things to see and do! Saskatoon has a number of one-stop shopping centres for your convenience that are easy to get to and will satisfy any diehard shopper. Not only will you find the basics, but you'll also find that special something at one of the exciting new shops at malls such as The Centre on 8th Street East and Midtown in downtown Saskatoon.

Saskatchewan boomed with economic activity from the turn of the century to 1914. Landseekers flooded the west and towns grew almost overnight. 1910 Boomtown, an indoor representation of a typical Saskatchewan town, recaptures the atmosphere and style of this bustling period. Over 30 buildings await!

Located on Treaty 4 and Treaty 6 territories and the Homeland of the Métis, the Western Development Museum (WDM) is the largest human history museum in Saskatchewan. With a collection of over 75,000 artifacts ranging from pins to locomotives and four locations in the province, the WDM shares the Saskatchewan story from the beginning of settlement to present day.

The WDM serves the people of Saskatchewan through its exhibits, educational and public programs, special events, and research about the history of the province. Its mandate is to collect, preserve, and exhibit objects of historical value and importance connected with the economic and cultural development of western Canada and to stimulate interest in western Canadian history.

The Western Development Museum’s vision includes a Saskatchewan where everyone belongs and histories matter.
