There were more vehicles on Saskatchewan's roads this year.

36,000 more vehicles were registered in Saskatchewan in 2008.  This is the largest increase in Saskatchewan on record.  In total SGI has insured 975,000 vehicles in Saskatchewan over the past 12 months.  This is an increase of over 50,000 from last year.

The crown corporations also saw an increase.  SaskEnergy received 5,000 more customers, with SaskPower signing up 7,500 more as well.

According to Minister of Crown Corporations, Ken Cheveldayoff our population is growing and Saskatchewan continues to have the lowest unemployment rate in the country.

He adds that when you factor in young people returning to live and work within with province we are seeing this good news in many ways.
