Saskatoon is the largest city in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan. It straddles a bend in the South Saskatchewan River in the central area of the province. It lies along the Trans-Canada Yellowhead Highway and has acted as the cultural and economic hub of central Saskatchewan since its founding in 1882 as a Temperance nest.

Saskatoon is house to the University of Saskatchewan, the Meewasin Valley Authority, which protects the South Saskatchewan River and offers the city’s popular riverbank park areas, and Wanuskewin Heritage Park, a National Historic Site of Canada and UNESCO World Heritage candidate representing 6,000 years of First Nations history. The Rural Municipality of Corman Park No. 344, the most populous rural municipality in Saskatchewan, surrounds the city and includes a number of the advancements related to it, including Wanuskewin. Saskatoon is named after the saskatoon berry, which is belonging to the area and is itself stemmed from the Cree misâskwatômina.
