The province of Saskatchewan is one of only two Canadian provinces without a saltwater coast, and it is the only province whose boundaries that have not been formed by natural features.
The population has changed markedly during the area’s history, the period of heaviest immigration was in the early 20th century. The province was originally exclusively American Indian, French and British elements were added during the 18th and early 19th centuries, as well as a large population of mixed Indian and European ancestry, whom the Canadian government granted legal recognition as a native group at the beginning of the 21st century.
Following the construction of a transcontinental railway in the early 1880s, further settlement spread across the province. In addition to British and eastern Canadian settlers, other Europeans notably Germans, Austrians, Scandinavians and Poles came to the area along with Ukrainians and Russians. Some were attracted by generous homestead grants whilst others came to escape religious and political persecution in their own countries.
