An­drew Hiltz, the 2017 Saskatchewan­derer, con­tin­ues to be amazed by what he finds while ex­plor­ing the province.

Hiltz, who spoke at Tourism Swift Cur­rent’s sev­enth an­nual 49˚ by 110˚ Spring Con­fer­ence on April 28, has been on the job four months pho­tograph­ing, video­ing, and blog­ging about the best of Saskatchewan.

“My job has been coined as the great­est job in the province. And af­ter four months of hold­ing the po­si­tion I have to ab­so­lutely say that that is def­i­nitely true,” Hiltz said.

“This job has ex­ceeded ev­ery ex­pec­ta­tion I could have pos­si­bly imag­ined. It is without a doubt the great­est op­por­tu­nity and the great­est ex­pe­ri­ence that I’ve had.”

As a tourism am­bas­sador for the province, the Saskatchewan­derer is a voice on so­cial media to at­tract peo­ple to Saskatchewan.

“I’m re­ally happy to have this job where I can help bring peo­ple here, and I have a far big­ger au­di­ence than I’ve ever had to pro­mote this in­cred­i­ble place.”

“That’s what I’m try­ing to do as the Saskatchewan­derer. I want to en­ter­tain, I want to ed­u­cate, and I want to in­spire peo­ple to get out and ex­plore this province.”

And he also hopes that through his posts, that res­i­dents across the province con­sider a hol­i­day in their own back­yard.

“Save your flight money. Hop in your car and drive a half hour down the road and do some­thing awe­some that not a lot of peo­ple get a chance to do. It doesn’t mat­ter which di­rec­tion you go in Saskatchewan, in a short drive there’s go­ing to be some top notch tourist des­ti­na­tions and ac­tiv­i­ties and events go­ing on.”

Hiltz is also shin­ing a spot­light on Saskatchewan’s amaz­ing culi­nary lo­ca­tions, and told the con­fer­ence del­e­gates about his amaz­ing trip to Cafe Terra in Eas­tend, call­ing it one of coolest places he has seen any­where.

“The food in this province is amaz­ing. Some of the most in­ter­est­ing, unique restau­rants are in those small towns, off the beaten path. You do have to go out of your way for, but you’re not go­ing to re­gret it if you do.”
