Welcome to the Town of Saltcoats

Saltcoats is located 27 km from the City of Yorkton. Due to the picturesque setting of Anderson Lake, Saltcoats has earned the title of "The Laketown".

Historic Metal Silhouette Banners
The Saltcoats Beautification Committee has been replacing the cloth banners that hung on the power poles along Commercial St with metal silhouette designs. The designs of the silhouette banners have been chosen to highlight Saltcoats' long and rich history. So far they have purchased and installed eleven metal silhouette banners. Some of the designs include a train and old station - Saltcoats was the "end of the line" in its early history, a Northwest Mounted Policeman - Saltcoats had one of the first barracks for the Northwest Mounted Police, an elevator with grain being delivered in a wagon, the old telephone office with a lineman up a pole, the old bank, a plow competition, and a tribute banner to honour our veterans. More banners highlight the groups of settlers who settled in this area - the Scottish Crofters, the Patagonian Welsh, the Ukrainians and the Hungarians. There is also a Treaty 4 banner to acknowledge our treaty relationship with First Nations. The committee has more banners on the drawing board. These designs will acknowledge Metis people and British settlers, highlight Saltcoats being the first incorporated village in the Northwest Territories and feature the environment and the need to care for it. If you have any ideas for a design or want to donate to this project, please contact the Town Office. Click here to view pictures of some of the banners.
Residents of Saltcoats are asked to remove residential garbage and recycle bins post pickup by OSS as soon as possible. By removing the bins from the roadway, the ability to grade the roads is greatly increased. Thank you for your understanding on this matter.
Saltcoats Historic Cemetery
Some progress has been made on aspects of the Saltcoats Historic Cemetery Rejuvenation Project. Winter will be a time when our committee gathers information, makes specific plans, and looks after items that are not dependent on summer weather. After a great start, donations have stalled and we need all who care about the cemetery’s maintenance and improvement to do what they can to provide funds and, very importantly, get the message out to family and friends who no longer live within the community but who would have loved ones buried in this cemetery. Personal notes, Facebook pages, whatever connects you with others, have already proven helpful. Late summer and through the fall season just are not times when we give a lot of attention to projects like this. Please do all you can to pass the word to family and friends and to encourage them to help with this worthy effort to honour those who have gone before us. For more information, a list of projects and ways to help, please click here.
