Saskatchewan is entirely mountain-free, and its vast acres of farmland comprise nearly 50 per cent of the country’s total. These days, fewer and fewer Saskatchewanians work as farmers or miners as more residents take up careers in the vast service sector of office jobs, bureaucracy and retail that have come to dominate the Canadian economy in general. Even so, the province’s one million residents remain fairly spread out, and Saskatchewan’s two biggest cities, Regina and Saskatoon, house less than 40% of the provincial population. Geographically, Manitoba is a mix of northern forests and southern grasslands and contains three of the country’s biggest lakes — Lake Manitoba, Lake Winnipegosis and Lake Winnipeg. Though the vast majority of Manitobans live in or around the capital city of Winnipeg, the far-north city of Churchill on the coast of Hudson Bay remains equally famous for its history with the fur trade and tourist-friendly arctic animals.

Saskatchewan has over one million light vehicles in operation while Manitoba is home to approximately 830,000 automobiles. Saskatchewan and Manitoba will grow their vehicle fleets and are expected to reach 1.1 million and 903.3k vehicles, respectively, by the end of 2022. Combined, the two provinces represent 7% of all light vehicles registered in Canada. Like Alberta, most of the vehicles in Saskatchewan and Manitoba are light trucks.
