List of cities in Saskatchewan

A city is a type of incorporated urban municipality in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan.[1] A city is created from a town by the Minister of Municipal Affairs by ministerial order via section 39 of The Cities Act if the town has a population of 5,000 or more and the change in status is requested by the town council.[2] In the early history of the province, the threshold for city status was much lower, with both Saskatoon and Regina achieving city status with populations in the 3,000 range. One city, Melville, currently has a population well below the 5,000 mark, but retains its city status as of 2015.

Saskatchewan has 16 cities[1] including Lloydminster, which traverses the provincial border with Alberta, but not including Flin Flon, which traverses the provincial border with Manitoba. Not including Flin Flon, Saskatchewan's cities had a cumulative population of 595,707 and an average population of 37,232 in the 2011 Census.[3][4] Saskatchewan's largest and smallest cities are Saskatoon and Melville with populations of 222,189 and 4,546 respectively.[3][4]
