A Jazz de Havilland Dash 8-400, registration C-GGNF performing flight QK-8588 from Calgary,AB to Saskatoon,SK (Canada ) with 52 people on board, landed on Saskatoon's runway 27 touching down 1000 feet down the runway within the touch down zone and slowed to taxi speed. Planning to vacate the runway at taxiway A at the end of the runway the crew continued taxi along the runway, but when they attempted to turn onto taxiway A the aircraft did not respond to steering and braking inputs. The aircraft overran the end of the runway at about 20 knots and came to a stop about 50 feet past the runway end in about 1.5 feet high snow. There were no injuries, the crew advised tower and shut the aircraft down.

Responding emergency services needed to clear the snow around the aircraft, then the passengers disembarked and were bussed to the terminal. The aircraft was subsequently towed to the apron.

The runway was closed for abotu 6:45 hours.

The Canadian TSB reported that a maintenance inspection did not identify any damage to the aircraft. ATIS at the time of the landing indicated a Canadian Runway Friction Index of 0.52 (braking action medium to good), however, after the occurrence an area of ice with poor braking action was spotted at the end of runway 27 in vicinity of taxiway A.
