Welcome to Churchbridge, Saskatchewan, Canada

The Town of Churchbridge is a welcoming and inclusive community, which is centrally located, whether for work or play.  We pride ourselves on having an excellent school system and being community focused.


Our vision is to be a, "progressive, active, and inclusive community that seeks sustainable economic and social growth that values its citizens and heritage." Our mission is to be, "an attractive community which celebrates its history, respects all of its citizens and focuses on involving its youth to have an active role in the community. With a fiscally responsible mindset, council works to market, develop, and plan for its current and future accomplishments."


Located along Highway 16 between the Manitoba border and Yorkton, we are home to a daycare, pre-school and a Kindergarten to Grade 12 school. We are in close proximity to the Mosaic Potash Mines, and we are definitely a growing community.  Our population has increased by 20% per cent since 2011. The 2016 census shows that Churchbridge has a population of 896.

Just a reminder to call (306) 896-7825 (the on call phone) after regular office hours, if you see any red or white lights on or if you notice any sounds coming from any of the lift stations. The lift stations are located across from the Town Shop, by the School, and at the south end of Cedar Crescent.

In addition, please do not message Town Staff privately on Facebook regarding Town related business. These messages are not checked on a regular basis. Please use the on call after hours phone to address your concern. Thank you.
