International migration has led to a population boom in Saskatchewan. According to data from Statistics Canada, Saskatoon is the fastest-growing city in Canada, with a population growth rate of 27.7 per 1,000 people between 2009 and 2010. Vancouver and Regina tied for the next spots, each with growth rates of 22.3 per 1,000 people. Nearly half of the population growth in Saskatchewan was fueled by new Canadians, Statistics Canada says. The data shows Saskatoon has overtaken the international appeal of larger cities such as Hamilton and Quebec City.
