City of Saskatoon

Saskatoon is a commercial and educational centre located on Treaty Six territory in the homeland of the Metis in what is now the province of Saskatchewan. Nine bridges cross the river within the city limits, seven for vehicle and pedestrian traffic, while the other two serve the Canadian Pacific and Canadian National Railways.

The precise origin of the name “Saskatoon” is not completely clear. Tradition has it that it was conferred by John Lake and is derived from the Cree word “misāskwatōmina”, which refers to the Saskatoon berries that grow in such profusion here. Some sources, however, have suggested that the name for this area predates the founding of the Temperance Colony, and was given by Cree people who stopped here to cut the Saskatoon willow wands to use for arrow shafts. The word “misāskwat” refers to the willows and “manimisāskwatān” to the place where they are cut.

When the Province of Saskatchewan was formed in 1905 there was some debate as to the location of the capital and of the University. It was felt by many that Saskatoon should be chosen as the capital, but eventually a compromise was reached whereby Regina became the seat of the government and the provincial University was placed at Saskatoon.
