Saskatoon Square is a 16 story office tower in downtown Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. It is located at the northeast corner of 22nd Street East and 4th Avenue North. It was built in 1979 and is the third tallest building in Saskatoon and the tallest office tower.

In December 2010, the building was sold to Dundee Real Estate Investment Trust for $50 million. The building was previously owned by a partnership consisting of SaskTel, MacPherson, Leslie & Tyerman, the Saskatoon Health District and Commerce Holdings. SaskTel owned 70% of the building with remaining partners each holding 10%.[1]

A seventh-storey window broke and fell to the street below on January 15, 2014. It was caused by winds gusting up to 115 kilometres per hour (71 mph), which also weakened three other windows.[2]
