2020 Summer Youth Program

It is with regret we notify residents that the Village is unable to facilitate the Summer Youth Program in the summer of 2020.

Canwood Public School along with Saskatchewan Rivers School Division No. 119 made the difficult decision to not participate as the host site this year. Without the availability of the host site, and the loss of benefits this partnership provides, Council made the tough decision to cancel the program for the 2020 year. Both of the above decisions were due to the ongoing COVID pandemic and based on the high level of uncertainty as it relates to access to the building, safety of the children and workers and many other logistical concerns. Hopefully next year we have less uncertainty in our world and community and the Village along with our partner, Canwood Public School, are able to facilitate this program once again.

Village Office Closed to the Public

Please note that the Village office is closed to the public until further notice, however staff will still be able to respond to any phone calls or emails during regular business hours.

If you have a utility or tax payment to make, please see if your financial institution can assist, mail the payment or place in the mail slot in the village door.
