Town of Shaunavon

Town of Shaunavon

Welcome to Shaunavon!

The Town of Shaunavon is a vibrant and picturesque community nestled in the Southwest corner of Saskatchewan.  Our many and varied businesses provide a wide range of products and services, enabling the community to be a major service centre in the great southwest.  Shaunavon serves a large agricultural area and is fortunate to have a bustling oil industry.

Established in 1913, Shaunavon's pure and abundant water supply was the key resource that drew over 700 settlers in less than one year's time, earning it the nickname “Boomtown.” In fact, Shaunavon became the first community in Canada to grow from a village to a town in under one year.  Today, this water supply contiues to be essential to our economic growth, supplying the busy oilfiled.

Shaunavon's residents enjoy top notch recreation and cultural facilities and activites all year round. This is a community where neighbours become friends and where friends unite to build a community in which we can all share. We are proud of our past and excited about the potential of our future.

These pages are designed to introduce our town to visitors and potential partners, as well as to provide information about upcoming events and local government information for those of us lucky enough to call this community home.
