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.

Cat Issues

The Town office continues to receive complaints about CATS running at large.
According the Town Bylaw (h) Every Owner or Keeper shall ensure that their cat(s) is not being a nuisance or running at large. For more details see: http://www.churchbridge.com/office/bylaws/2015-012_Cat.pdf

TIPS ON PREVENTING CAT COMPLAINTS 
The Town of Churchbridge is hopeful that all residents of the Town can live in harmony with their neighbours. Unfortunately irritants arise from time to time that do not encourage positive neighbourly relationships. Cats that are permitted to be a “nuisance and/or run at large” are one such irritant.

Informed professionals advise us that the life expectancy of an outdoor cat is considered to be very short. These cats are struck by moving vehicles, caught in the fans of motor vehicles, mauled by stray dogs, injured in cat fights, and are exposed to disease, extreme heat and severe cold. The injury or death of your pet by any cause is a highly emotional and frequently expensive experience.

We believe that the kindest thing you can do for your pet is to have it spayed or neutered and to keep it indoors. You may also wish to consider harness and/or leash training, continual outdoor supervision, or building an enclosed cat run. Any activity you elect will keep your cat out of your neighbour’s yards will help improve neighbourhood relationships. It will also keep your cat from being impounded and you from being prosecuted.

Be a responsible cat owner and a good neighbour: Spay or neuter your cat; have your cat tattooed and register, microchip implanted, or wear identification bearing your name and telephone number; keep your cat indoors, in an outdoor, enclosed cat run, on a harness or leash, or under continual supervision.
