List of municipalities in Saskatchewan

Saskatchewan is the sixth-most populous province in Canada with 1,098,352 residents as of 2016 and is the fifth-largest in land area at 588,244 km2 (227,122 sq mi).[1] In 2016, Saskatchewan's 774 municipalities covered 52.7% of the province's land mass and were home to 94.8% of its population.[2][3][lower-alpha 1] These 774 municipalities are local government "creatures of provincial jurisdiction" with natural persons power.[4] One of the key purposes of Saskatchewan's municipalities are "to provide services, facilities and other things that, in the opinion of council, are necessary or desirable for all or a part of the municipality".[4] Other purposes are to: "provide good government"; "develop and maintain a safe and viable community"; "foster economic, social and environmental well-being" and "provide wise stewardship of public assets."[4]

The Government of Saskatchewan's Ministry of Municipal Relations recognizes three general types of municipalities and seven sub-types urban municipalities (cities, towns, villages and resort villages), rural municipalities and northern municipalities (northern towns, northern villages and northern hamlets).[2] Cities are formed under the provincial authority of The Cities Act, which was enacted in 2002.[5] Towns, villages, resort villages and rural municipalities are formed under the authority of The Municipalities Act, enacted in 2005.[6] The three sub-types of northern municipalities are formed under the authority of The Northern Municipalities Act, enacted in 2010.[7] As provincial laws, these three acts were passed by the Legislative Assembly of Saskatchewan with royal assent granted by the Lieutenant Governor.

Of Saskatchewan's 774 municipalities, 454 of them are urban municipalities (16 cities, 147 towns, 250 villages and 41 resort villages), 296 are rural municipalities and 24 are northern municipalities (2 northern towns, 11 northern villages and 11 northern hamlets).[2] The Cities Act, The Municipalities Act and The Northern Municipalities Act stipulate governance of these municipalities.[5][6][7] Saskatchewan's Ministry of Municipal Relations is responsible for providing provincial programs and services to municipalities.[8]

In 2016, just over 42% of Saskatchewan's population resided in its two largest cities. Saskatoon, the largest city, is home to 22% of the province's population (246,376 residents), while Regina, Saskatchewan's capital city, is home to 20% (215,106 residents).[3] The resort villages of Greig Lake and Leslie Beach are tied as Saskatchewan's smallest municipalities by population with 10 people each.[3] The largest municipality by land area is the Rural Municipality of Hudson Bay No. 394 at 12,462.61 km2 (4,811.84 sq mi), while the smallest by land area is the Resort Village of Pelican Pointe at 0.12 km2 (0.046 sq mi).[3]

As of 2020, Saskatchewan has 454 urban municipalities, which includes the sub-types of cities, towns, villages and resort villages.[2]

Cities

A city can be created from a town by Saskatchewan's Minister of Municipal Relations by ministerial order via section 39 of The Cities Act if it has a population of 5,000 or more and the change in status is requested by the town council.[5] A city does not automatically revert to town status if the population drops below 5,000; this only occurs if the city council requests it, the majority of electors vote to revert to town status, or the minister is of the opinion that the reversion to town status is in the public interest.[5] Melville retains its city status despite dropping below the 5,000 population threshold in the 1990s.

Saskatchewan has 16 cities including Lloydminster, which traverses the provincial border with Alberta.[2] Unlike Lloydminster, Flin Flon, which traverses the provincial border with Manitoba, is not officially recognized as a city. Saskatchewan's 16 cities had a cumulative population of 655,313 in the 2016 Census.[3] Saskatchewan's largest and smallest cities are Saskatoon and Melville with populations of 246,376 and 4,562.[3] The largest and smallest city by land area are Saskatoon and Flin Flon with 228.13 km2 (88.08 sq mi) and 2.37 km2 (0.92 sq mi).[3]

Towns

A town can be created from a village or resort village by Saskatchewan's Minister of Municipal Relations by ministerial order via section 52 of The Municipalities Act if it has a population of 500 or more.[6] Upon reaching a population of 5,000, a town's council may request the minister to change its status to a city in accordance with section 39 of The Cities Act.[5] Should a town's population decline to less than 500, its council may request its status be reverted to village or resort village status.[6]

Saskatchewan has 147 towns that had a cumulative population of 147,477 in the 2016 Census.[2][3] Saskatchewan's largest and smallest towns are Kindersley and Scott with populations of 4,597 and 73.[3][9] The largest and smallest town by land area are Battleford and Francis with 23.33 km2 (9.01 sq mi) and 0.59 km2 (0.23 sq mi).[3]

Villages

A village can be created from an organized hamlet by Saskatchewan's Minister of Municipal Relations by ministerial order via section 51 of The Municipalities Act if it meets four requirements. It must have:[6]

  • been an organized hamlet for three or more years;
  • a population of 300 or more;
  • 150 or more dwellings or businesses; and
  • a taxable assessment of at least $30 million.[5][10]

Upon reaching a population of 500, a village's council may request the minister to change its status to a town in accordance with section 52 of The Municipalities Act.[6]

Saskatchewan has 250 villages that had a cumulative population of 41,514 in the 2016 Census.[2][3] Saskatchewan's largest village is Caronport with a population of 994, while Ernfold, Keeler, Krydor, Valparaiso and Waldron are all tied as the province's smallest villages with populations of 15 each.[3] The largest and smallest villages by land area are Christopher Lake and Duff with 4.56 km2 (1.76 sq mi) and 0.22 km2 (0.085 sq mi).[3]

Resort villages

Like a village, a resort village can be created from an organized hamlet by Saskatchewan's Minister of Municipal Relations by ministerial order via section 51 of The Municipalities Act if it has:

  • been an organized hamlet for three or more years;
  • can demonstrate with a municipal census of the organized hamlet a permanent and seasonal population of 300 if the most recent national census shows a population of at least 100;
  • 150 or more dwellings or businesses;
  • a taxable assessment of at least $35 million;
  • and is predominantly of a resort nature[6][10]

Upon reaching a population of 500, a resort village's council may request the minister to change its status to a town in accordance with section 52 of The Municipalities Act.[6]

Saskatchewan has 41 resort villages that had a cumulative population of 4,834 in the 2016 Census.[2][3] Saskatchewan's largest resort village by population is Candle Lake with 840 inhabitants while the smallest is Greig Lake with a population of 10.[3] The largest and smallest resort municipalities by land area are Candle Lake and Pelican Pointe with 121.92 km2 (47.07 sq mi) and 63.32 km2 (24.45 sq mi).[3]

Northern municipalities

Distribution of Saskatchewan's 2 northern towns, 11 northern villages and 11 northern hamlets within the Northern Saskatchewan Administration District (2013)

Saskatchewan has 24 northern municipalities, which includes the sub-types of northern towns, northern villages and northern hamlets,[2] that are located within the Northern Saskatchewan Administration District (NSAD).[19] Administration of northern towns, northern villages and northern hamlets is regulated by The Northern Municipalities Act.[7] Under this act:

  • a northern town may be formed from a northern village if it has a permanent resident population of at least 500;
  • a northern village may be formed from a northern hamlet if it has a permanent resident population of at least 100 and contains at least 50 separate dwelling units or business premises; and
  • a northern hamlet may be formed from an unincorporated northern settlement if it has a permanent population of at least 50 and contains at least 25 separate dwelling units or business premises.

Saskatchewan has 2 northern towns, 11 northern villages and 11 northern hamlets.[2] The largest and smallest northern municipalities by population are La Loche (a northern village) and Dore Lake (a northern hamlet) with 2,827 and 30.[3] The largest and smallest northern municipalities by land area are Green Lake and Black Point with 121.92 km2 (47.07 sq mi) and 0.94 km2 (0.36 sq mi).[3]

  1. The remaining 5.2% of Saskatchewan's population resides on Indian reserves, Indian settlements, the vast unincorporated portions of the Northern Saskatchewan Administration District and other unincorporated areas. Together, they occupy the remaining 47.3% of the province's land mass.[3]
  2. This refers to the rural municipality that surrounds the urban municipality.
  3. The balance of Flin Flon is located within Manitoba. The populations presented here do not include 4,982 (2016) and 5,405 (2011) in the Manitoba portion of Flin Flon, while the land area also does not include 13.87 km2 (5.36 sq mi) in the Manitoba portion. The city's total populations in 2016 and 2011 were 5,185 and 5,634, while its total land area was 16.24 km2 (6.27 sq mi).[13]
  4. While the Saskatchewan portion of Flin Flon does not have a formal incorporation date, it was the passing of The Flin Flon Extensions of Boundaries Act, 1952, when the portion of Flin Flon in Manitoba held town status, that enabled a single municipal jurisdiction for the Manitoba and Saskatchewan portions of Flin Flon.[14]
  5. The Saskatchewan portion of Flin Flon is surrounded by the unorganized Northern Saskatchewan Administration District
