Saskatoon is a city located in central Saskatchewan, Canada, on the South Saskatchewan River. Saskatoon is the most populous city in the province. Residents of Saskatoon are usually called Saskatonians.

Known as the "City of Bridges" for its seven river crossings, the city's name comes from the western Cree word for the saskatoon berry, misāskwatōmin. A long-time nickname for Saskatoon is "Hub City", while the name is also commonly abbreviated "S'toon". Following the release of the film Who Framed Roger Rabbit in 1988, many residents began referring to the city by the nickname "'Toontown", after a similarly named location in the film. A tongue-in-cheek nickname for the city by some residents is "Saskabush". Saskatoon is reputed to be the "Paris of the prairies," a title which likely originated in the song "Wheat Kings" by The Tragically Hip, a prominent Canadian rock band.
