Note on Saskatchewan Housing

Since these videos were prepared, Saskatchewan has experienced a significiant change in its business and financial situation due to the increased demand for its two main natural resources, oil and potash.  Although this has been a great benefit to the Province in general in that many Canadians are moving or relocating to Saskatchewan, it has resulted in a fluctuation in housing costs.  As a guide the current cost of housing is approximately double the prices quoted in the video segments on this website.  CPL apologizes for any discrepancies between what is stated on our videos and what the current costs are.
