The next Saskatchewanderer will be able to showcase the beauty of the province as a full-time job.

Applications are now being accepted for the position that starts in April.

The program is a partnership between Tourism Saskatchewan and the Ministry of Parks, Culture and Sport, now in its 12th year.

Previously, the position was a 12-month term contract. Felipe Gomez, the current Saskatchewanderer, wraps up his term on March 31.

“This is one of the best jobs I have ever had and it’s my turn to ‘pass the hat’ to the next Saskatchewanderer,” said Gomez. 

“If you love adventure, meeting people, trying delicious food, and most importantly, sharing all your discoveries with thousands of followers, this is the job for you.”

Gomez earned high praise from Minister Responsible for Tourism Saskatchewan, Jeremy Harrison

“An imaginative, talented and proud ambassador for our province, Felipe Gomez elevated Saskatchewan’s profile as a destination where warm hospitality and inviting communities shape meaningful travel experiences,” said Harrison.

“The Saskatchewanderer program has evolved over the years and grown its fan base to more than 137,000 followers. The change to this role will allow for continuity of content development and storytelling and create efficiencies in promoting tourism entrepreneurs and small businesses in Saskatchewan.”

The program change allows for high-quality Saskatchewanderer content to be produced year-round, uninterrupted by the annual personnel change. 

It also allows the candidate to develop as a spokesperson for promoting the province’s tourism experiences, events, sport and cultural offerings.

Applications for the new full-time, permanent Saskatchewanderer position will be accepted until 5 p.m. on March 9.
