A city is a type of incorporated urban municipality in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan.[1] A city is created from a town by the Minister of Municipal Affairs by ministerial order via section 39 of The Cities Act if the town has a population of 5,000 or more and the change in status is requested by the town council.[2]
