GREETINGS FROM THE MAYOR
On behalf of Council, I would like to welcome you to the Town of Kindersley.
A thriving community located in the heart of the Canadian prairies, the Town of Kindersley has operated as a centre for industry, small business, health services, and recreation for the west-central region of Saskatchewan for over 100 years. The settlers that founded the Town in 1910 established high standards of strength, ingenuity, and resilience that still exist in our residents today.
The resource rich land provides opportunities that feel as limitless as the prairie sky. Home to approximately 5,000 people, Kindersley is a respected producer of both agricultural and energy commodities. Innovation and entrepreneurship are alive and well here as any visit to our diverse selection of major outlets, specialty stores, and local businesses will attest. Kindersley offers the tranquility of a rural lifestyle with all the amenities and benefits of a small city.
Conveniently situated along Highway 7, which serves as a major transportation corridor, Kindersley is easily accessible, boasts services of a community twice its size, and has abundant accommodations to suit any length of stay. The Kindersley Regional Airport, a short fi ve-minute drive from downtown, can successfully land a wide variety of fi xed-wing aircraft as well as helicopters, including STARS Ambulance.
Many business owners are members of the Kindersley and District Chamber of Commerce, the West Central Saskatchewan Oilmen’s Association (WCSOA), or the Downtown Kindersley Association (DKA) to name but a few of the supportive enterprises for businesses. Community Futures Saskreatchewan is deeply rooted in Kindersley and has been encouraging and supporting business owners and entrepreneurs for over 25 years. Over the years, Council has encouraged business development by offering tax incentives and other supportive measures. The door to Council Chambers is always open to those interested in locating or starting a business here.
Kindersley is a welcoming community with something to offer for people of all ages. It is a great spot for sports, recreation, and exploring nature. The Kindersley Community Walking Trail consists of 4.2km of paved walking trail surrounding the picturesque Motherwell Reservoir. Residents and visitors can take advantage of one of the many additional local attractions, including the Kindersley Regional Park which features a meticulously maintained 9-hole golf course, the Senses Unleashed Dog Park, a new, state of the art, indoor aquatic centre, and a plethora of neighbourhood parks, world-class baseball diamonds, a tennis, basketball, and even a pickleball court. During the winter there are a selection of well loved outdoor skating rinks that are always busy. Kindersley boasts a recreational complex commonly know as the WCEC which has two full size arena surfaces and a curling rink, all under one roof. Besides providing a home to local teams including the Klippers Junior “A” and Senior hockey clubs, there is a walking track that is free to public use, and many sport and wellness groups who meet to take advantage of the indoor amenities. Throughout Kindersley, lifelong friendships are established through the many sporting organizations that offer hockey, baseball, figure skating, sledge hockey, and soccer instruction, to name just a few.
Culture and heritage opportunities exist through the dedicated efforts of the Kindersley Players theatre group, the tourist booth, local artists, and the many concert events that have been hosted by the Town. The Kindersley and District Plains Museum features a fascinating array of artifacts exhibited in multiple display rooms and heritage buildings onsite. Main Street is home to the Post Offi ce which is over 80 years old and has been designated as a heritage building. Kindersley has hosted many fantastic concert opportunities over the years including artists the like of Tom Cochrane, Honeymoon Suite, Terri Clark, and Alice Cooper.
Business remains alive and well in Kindersley. During times of prosperity, times of crisis, or times of economic uncertainty, the businesses, and residents of the Town of Kindersley rally to support each other in order to preserve the way of life that Kindersley has so proudly maintained for over a century.
If you have already put down roots as a part of our business community here in Kindersley, I thank you on behalf of Council and the people you serve. If you are considering a start-up venture, relocating your business to Kindersley, or are thinking of expanding to our community, you and your family are wished a warm welcome. Even if you’re simply considering an exploratory business trip, please do so.
While most everything you’ll need or want to know about Kindersley is available on the Town’s website, our job at the Town Office and as members of Council is to help make you successful, so don’t hesitate to contact us if we can be of service. I look forward to further discussing your business ideas in person.
Mayor Rod Perkins
