We have heard from Saskatchewan people and they’re telling us that too many rural areas still have poor cellular coverage and slow internet service.

In the Throne Speech, we announced that SaskTel will spend $300 million this year to expand and enhance its network with more investments to come.

Since 2008, SaskTel has invested more than $2.6 billion to improve service and the upgrades need to continue.

From cellular and internet service to highways, trade-dependent jurisdictions like Saskatchewan require modern and well-maintained infrastructure to ensure they can compete and prosper.

Investments in Highway Infrastructure
During a decade of growth, our government has invested more than $26 billion to renew and expand Saskatchewan’s infrastructure. This includes the repair and improvement of 12,000 kilometres of highway and the completion of significant projects, such as Saskatoon’s Circle Drive South Bridge, the St. Louis Bridge, the twinning of Highway 11, and passing lanes on Highways 7 and 10.

This year, work continues on projects that include the Regina Bypass, overpasses at Warman and Martensville, the Saskatoon North Commuter Parkway Bridge, twinning projects on Highways 39, 16 and 7, and passing lanes on Highway 5.
