On this day in Canadian history, (July 22 1959), Queen Elizabeth II opened the Queen Elizabeth Generating Station of the Saskatchewan Power Corporation. The facility is a natural gas-fired station owned by SaskPower, located in Saskatoon. The station was originally called the South Saskatchewan River Generating Station but was renamed at the time of commissioning.
The station was originally called the South Saskatchewan River Generating Station but was renamed the Queen Elizabeth Generating Station at the time of commissioning.
In 2015, the Power Station received a $525 million upgrade to significantly increase electrical output, which subsequently led to a downgrade for coal. The upgrade included modernizing three gas turbines, making them more efficient and adding enough generation to power more than 200,000 homes.
Demand for electricity in the area is expected to grow by 13 per cent over the next 5 years, and more than two thirds of the power generated by the Queen Elizabeth Generating Station supplies industrial customers.
Recent upgrades to the Station added enough generation to power more than 200,000 homes.

On a positive note – a massive 250K net new jobs were created in Canada in the first five months of 2019. Even better news is the fact that two-thirds of those jobs were in the private sector and in full-time positions. The jobless rate even fell to an all-time low of 5.4% in May. The surge in cyclical sectors, particularly construction employment, suggests the economy, despite recent challenges, is now growing at a decent pace.
