Tourism and Hospitality

Tourism Saskatchewan’s tourism industry generates over $2.12 billion annually in economic spin-off and records about 12.5 million visits
per year. Over 80 per cent of tourism dollars come from Saskatchewan residents.

Moose Jaw boasts one of the highest numbers
of tourist attractions per capita in Canada and contributes over $90 million a year to the local economy.

According to Census information, Moose Jaw experienced more overnight, destination and longer stays from points of origin outside Saskatchewan than comparable size cities in the rest of the province. The city is already a well-known tourist destination, and tourists see Moose Jaw as a very safe and relaxing place to vacation. Local down town shops depend on a strong tourist trade, and not surprisingly are often the first to feel a down-turn in the economy. Several hotels have opened or expanded in the past few years expanding the supply of new rooms and substantially increasing local vacancy rates. With the downturn in the provincial economy local hotels may be further impacted as construction project are delayed or cancelled.

HERITAGE TOURISM Moose Jaw certainly recognizes the value of maintaining and restoring historic buildings and creating unique experiences for tourists. In a bold act of imagination, the city rejuvenated its downtown economy by tapping into the value of heritage buildings and its rich history. Moose Jaw’s historic Grant Hall Inn has been transformed into a stunningly elegant boutique hotel with fine dining restaurant, lounge, and retail area. Preservation of the city’s heritage and cultural assets provides a backdrop for many arts and culture attractions, including the Mae Wilson Performing Arts Theatre, Conexus Cultural Centre, Temple Gardens Mineral Spa, Casino Moose Jaw, the Tunnels of Moose Jaw, Yvette Moore Gallery, Moose Jaw Trolley Car Tours, Burrowing Owls, Sukanen Ship Pioneer Village & Museum, Library and Art Museum, and Western Development Museum, etc. Temple Gardens Mineral Spa is named one of the ‘Top 100 Spas in North America’ placing 45th and included in the ‘Top 10 Getaways in Canada’.

MOSAIC PLACE AND YARACENTRE the City’s hockey, curling sports complex and field house have attracted major sporting events, festivals and conventions to the city. In 2016 Mosaic Place earned recognition in the Top 5 Venues Today Magazine attracting over 650,000 turns annually.

DINING & SHOPPING The downtown area showcases plenty of one-of-a-kind shopping and dining experiences found throughout its many boutiques and cafes offering a personalized brand of customer service.

ARTS & CULTURE Festival Visitors enjoy a host of arts and cultural festivals, such as: the Festival of Words, Moose Jaw Band and
Choral Festival, Music Festival, Motif, Moose Jaw Dance Festival, etc. RuBarb Productions Inc. is a local theatrical production company providing educational opportunities to young people and live theatre year-round at the Mae Wilson Theatre.
