The Town of Shaunavon is a vibrant and picturesque community nestled in the Southwest corner of Saskatchewan. Our diverse business sector provides a wide range of products and amenities, enabling the community to be a significant service centre in the great Southwest. Shaunavon prides itself on serving a large agricultural sector 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 continues to be essential to our economic growth. Shaunavon possesses multiple top notch recreation and cultural facilities for all ages which residents and tourists enjoy all year round.
This is a community where neighbors 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!
