The numbers are in after two full years of offering the program, proving it's been well received. Since the program’s inception, over 1,000 requests have been approved - providing free transit services to 26,451 students for class field trips. Most field trips take place in May and June with 2,256 participants in May 2019 and 2,323 participants in June 2019. Saskatoon Transit’s ClassPass program is a resounding success!
Fitting with the City’s Strategic Goal of Moving Around, the ClassPass program provides free transit service to Kindergarten through Grade 12 students, teachers, and chaperons, on regular transit routes, for field trip destinations within Saskatoon.Read more
The Saskatoon Municipal Wards Commission is seeking insight and information from citizens of Saskatoon as the Commission looks to establish new ward boundaries for the municipal/school boards' elections in fall 2020 because of population growth and shifts since the 2016 election.
The City of Saskatoon is divided into ten wards. The Cities Act stipulates that each ward must contain approximately the same population, with ward populations varying by no more than 10% from the average ward population (the City's total population divided by the ten wards).
Currently, the populations of Ward 7 and Ward 10 exceed the 10% variance while the populations of Ward 5 and Ward 8 fall below the threshold. Accordingly, the Municipal Wards Commission will establish new ward boundaries to be in effect for the city's municipal election and school boards' elections in fall 2020. Of note, reconfiguring the ward boundaries to ensure all ten comply to the legislated population range will affect the boundaries of other wards as well in all three options.
This means that for the 2020 municipal and school boards' election, Ward 8's boundaries WILL change.Read more
