Maple Creek – 2019 National Finalist
The Town of Maple Creek is the hub of the southwest.
Ideally positioned along the Trans-Canada Highway & the CPR mainline, this community of 2,500 is centrally located an equal distance between the major urban centres of Saskatoon, Regina, Calgary & Great Falls and an hour from the regional centres of Medicine Hat and Swift Current. This convenient proximity offers the community ready access to major shipping corridors, as well as ready access to connector flights to international airports.
A number of industries use Maple Creek as an important service centre, including: ranching, farming, oil & gas and tourism. Located within Tourism Saskatchewan’s recently designated Cypress Hills Destination Area, tourism returns are a significant aspect of the community’s commercial sector.
Maple Creek offers its diverse population the less complicated lifestyle of a smaller community, while providing all the cultural and recreational amenities one would expect of a regional centre.
Culturally vibrant, the community of Maple Creek boasts numerous annual festivals and cultural events. The community is proud of its rich heritage, which is evident in its two museums, downtown Heritage District and numerous rodeos.
A long standing cooperative relationship with Nekaneet First Nation, as well as opportunities for new immigrants rounds out the multi-cultural face of the community.
Modern infrastructure amenities such as recently upgraded educational facilities (K-12), a new regional integrated health care facility, a satellite campus of the regional college, and new water treatment plant all contribute to the development and well-being of the citizenry.
Various community facilities ensure that recreation & leisure opportunities abound, including walking trails, parks, skating & curling rinks, swimming pool, golf course, spray-park, seniors’ centre and more.
Maple Creek is a “shovel-ready” community that currently has residential, commercial & light-industrial lots available.
Maple Creek is a great place to visit, to live, and to do business!
