The 2017 Saskatchewanderer is a small-town guy with five years of world travelling experience, who is ready to share Saskatchewan stories.
Andrew Hiltz is from Coronach, Saskatchewan, 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.
Hiltz says he 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.”
The Saskatchewanderer program’s mandate is to promote the many ways that Saskatchewan is an amazing place to live, work and play.
