Confederation Mall is a 329,128 sq. ft. shopping mall located at 22nd Street and Circle Drive in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. The mall was originally named Confederation Park Plaza when it opened in mid-1973, at which time its anchor tenants were Canada Safeway and Woolco.
The mall was originally planned for a location on Saskatoon's east side, at the southwest corner of Clarence Avenue and Circle Drive, but in May 1972 Saskatoon City Council rejected the plan citing community concerns. As a result, the mall's developers looked to build on an alternate site on the city's west side. However plans for a mall in the area around what is now Confederation Park had existed at least as early as 1966.
In 1994, Woolco became Wal-Mart, and around this same time the mall underwent an expansion that added a food court and a new Safeway store; the original Safeway location became part of the food court with the remaining space used for a third anchor tenant, initially a branch of the Family Video home video rental chain, and later Petland. Other stores include clothing stores, electronics, services, florist, banks and jewelers.  
In the summer of 2009, a new Wal-Mart was constructed in a new power centre commercial area in the Blairmore Suburban Centre several kilometres west of Confederation Mall; the one in the mall closed and in 2010 was renovated to house a Canadian Tire (with Mark's Work Wearhouse) that opened in 2011 (in turn, the new Canadian Tire replaced a standalone location that had operated in the nearby Plaza 22 shopping centre since the 1970s). Canadian Tire/Mark's is a stand-alone store and is not accessible from inside the mall. A new McDonalds opened up in early spring of 2012, standing on the corner where an old Esso station once stood. In fall 2012, a location of Winners was added as a new anchor store, taking the place of several former retailers. As of summer 2013, the mall has a large number of vacancies.
