Welcome to the
Town of Saltcoats

Saltcoats' population, according to the 2016 Canadian Census, is 484. It is located on the Trans-Canada Yellowhead Highway #16 between Winnipeg MB and Saskatoon SK.

Saltcoats is situated only 27 km from the thriving City of Yorkton and due to the picturesque setting of Anderson Lake has earned the title "The Laketown of Saskatchewan".

Saltcoats can boast of several major industries that headquarter in our town such as, EMW Industrial, PennTruss, and Castleton Industries. It is well located in the Agricultural and Potash industrial area and within commuting distance of the industries in nearby Yorkton.

Saltcoats offers residents of the Town and RM an ice rink, curling rink, library, community hall, daycare, and a senior’s care home. There is a hotel, restaurant with bed and breakfast, Credit Union, liquor outlet, two antique stores, auto repair and a gas station and convenience store. An elementary school from Kindergarten to Grade 8 welcomes children from Saltcoats, Bredenbury and many rural students from the area, as well as a playschool for children 3-4 years old. Our location makes access to all the Yorkton amenities and shopping very convenient.
