Follow the Saskatchewanderer
The Saskatchewanderer is a joint initiative operated by four partners: the Ministry of Parks, Culture and Sport; the Ministry of Trade and Export Development; the Ministry of Agriculture; and Tourism Saskatchewan. Each year a competition is run, and the successful applicant is hired to tour the province, create blogs and videos, and share amazing Saskatchewan stories. This year's Saskatchewanderer is Zane Buchanan.
Raised in Saskatchewan, but with experience living and working away from the province, Zane Buchanan will bring a unique perspective to the role as 2019 Saskatchewanderer. He has a passion for the arts and social media blogging, and looks forward to meeting the people who make the province an inviting destination.
Buchanan grew up on an acreage near White City. He spent time in eastern Canada and on the west coast, pursuing an education and working in broadcasting, theatre and social media before applying to become the next Saskatchewanderer. Along with a diploma in broadcasting for web, radio and TV, he earned a bachelor of music theatre performance and completed a comedy writing course. He nurtures his appetite for knowledge and learning through continuing education courses with Simon Fraser University.
“Along with my travel companion – my trusty dog, Stedman – I'm eager to expand on the legacy left behind by the seven unique and talented wanderers who preceded me,” Buchanan said. “Aside from exposing the evident natural wonder of Saskatchewan, I'm keen on giving a voice to the many inspiring entrepreneurs, artists and diverse communities that our province has to offer.”
