I want to extend a huge welcome from our businesses and citizens of the Town of Hudson Bay. We live in a small part of paradise we call northeast Saskatchewan. Our emphasis is on the health and well being of our citizens and their families while living and playing in the great outdoors.
Hudson Bay is in a picturesque setting with the Porcupine Forest and hills to the south and the Pasquia Hills and Wildcat Wilderness park to the north. Hudson Bay is located east of Saskatoon and 60 km west of the Manitoba border at the junction of Hwy #3 and Hwy #9. Highway #9 runs south to Yorkton and north to The Pas and Flin Flon Manitoba. Our Town offers a variety of summer and winter recreational facilities you can enjoy. Our 9-hole golf course with beautiful grass greens is a must play, and our summer aquatic center, shale ball diamonds and the 5-pin bowling alley all add to the recreational activities available in Hudson Bay.
Located at the junction of three (3) rivers and close to many lakes, our area provides for great hunting, fishing, camping, nature trails and ATVing opportunities. Our long winters and snow conditions allow us to maintain over 680 km of award winning groomed snowmobile trails with approximately twelve (12) warm up shelters to warm your fingers and toes. We also have a very busy skating/hockey arena, cross country ski trail network at the red deer downs and curling club with four sheet of curling ice.
Our health care is supported by four family physicians two nurse practitioners and a caring hospital staff, with nine-bed acute care and adjoining 25-unit long term care facility. Professional care is provided by our home-care staff along with access to optometrists, massage therapists, dentist and physiotherapist.
We have a beautiful new school with K-12 and attached playschool-daycare facility located next to our Aquatic Centre and Arena. We have a very active community with clubs for children, youth and adults and the best volunteer support in the province.
Hudson Bay has a twenty-member volunteer Fire Department, five RCMP members and two ambulances and staff.
We have a solid economy based on forestry, farming, tourism and mineral exploration. We welcome newcomers by having business incentives in place to assist in settlement and expansion.
Our big summer and tourist celebration is held the third Saturday every August when we host the Heritage Day celebrations provided and sponsored by our Heritage Park. The Board and Staff look after the largest antique John Deere Tractor collection in North America and one of the largest tea cup/saucer collections as well. Summer of 2017 we are having a huge Home Coming to celebrate Canada’s 150 Years everyone is welcome to join in the fun.
We are safe and senior friendly community where we want to raise our families to be active, healthy and enjoy the natural beauty that surrounds us.
We extend an invitation to each of you for a visit to Hudson Bay, Saskatchewan.
Glenn McCaffery, Mayor
