Many of the country's political leaders have been weighing in on the announcement, including Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
Thanks, @PremierBradWall, for your years of service and work for the province & people of Saskatchewan. All the best in your retirement.— @JustinTrudeau
Saskatchewan interim Opposition Leader Nicole Sarauer wished Wall and his family well.
I want to thank Premier Wall for his decades of service to Saskatchewan. Political differences aside, it's a tough job. #skpoli 1/2— @nicolesarauer
So did current and past provincial party leaders from elsewhere in Canada.
Thank you @PremierBradWall for 18 years of hard work and determined service to the people of Saskatchewan.— @Kathleen_Wynne
Congrats @PremierBradWall. Canada will be worse off without your gutsy common sense making its mark on the national stage. 1/3— @christyclarkbc
But, take it from me, retirement IS all that it is cracked up to be! 2/3— @christyclarkbc
Also the Gulf Islands are gorgeous this time of year and I have a bottle of BC’s best Pinot Gris to welcome you and Tammy any time. 3/3— @christyclarkbc
Federal Opposition leader Andrew Scheer called Wall a "champion of the conservative movement."
Meanwhile, Wall was also lauded from the other side of the political aisle.
Best wishes to Premier Wall. Disagreements aside, there is no mistaking your passion for Saskatchewan. Thank you for your service!— @RalphGoodale
Sask. mayors weigh in
On the municipal front, mayors of Saskatchewan's largest cities said Wall will leave behind an important legacy
"He's moved our province ahead in so many ways," Regina Mayor Michael Fougere told reporters. "We're a have-province now, we have lots of wealth, our population growth that's happening in this province. We need to thank him for what he's done, because he's done a remarkable job."
Meanwhile, Saskatoon Mayor Charlie Clark said he had his differences with Wall, notably in recent funding changes to the province's towns and cities.
"I haven't agreed with every decision he's made," he said. 'But that never stopped us from being able to talk to each other and being able to deal with each other in our efforts, trying to do the best on behalf of our province and our communities."
Wall said he would stay on as premier until the party elects a new leader.
