The Saskatchewanderer is a joint initiative operated by four partners: the Ministry of Parks, Culture and Sport; the Ministry of the Economy; 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 Andrew Hiltz.
The 2017 Saskatchewanderer is a small-town guy with five years of world travelling experience, and he's ready to share Saskatchewan stories. Andrew Hiltz is from Coronach, and brings with him a background in marketing and a passion to explore.Hiltz has spent the last five years visiting Europe, Australia, and North and South America. Along the way he has documented his travels through photography, videography and journaling. He focused on trying new things, meeting fascinating people, and updating his social media along the way so that “mom knew where I was."
Hiltz takes pride in the experience he gained from working with local businesses, such as Richardson Pioneer, which equipped him with a better understanding of Saskatchewan agriculture, and SaskPower where he learned about the operations of a coal-fired power station. Being the Saskatchewanderer has been a goal of his for a long time.
“Friends and family have been encouraging me to apply for this job since day one,” Hiltz said. “This was the first year that the stars aligned and I truly felt ready to take on the challenge.”
