Mortgage brokers in the province are licensed by the Financial and Consumer Affairs Authority of Saskatchewan, which advocates for and protects the interests of local buyers. By licensing the profession, they help ensure that brokers have completed the appropriate educational requirements and are meeting the professional standards needed to foster a thriving, sustainable industry in the province.
Just over one million Canadians call this expansive prairie province home. Most of the population is concentrated in two cities — Saskatoon and Regina — while the rest of the residents are spread across small towns that have populations of 35,000 or less. The province is the single largest producer of Canadian grain, and historically much of the population has been employed in the agriculture industry. In recent years the economy has been diversifying, and industries like finance, real estate, mining, petroleum, education and social services have overtaken agriculture in terms of local economic activity (GDP).
