Craik, SK & Community
There is a tremendous amount of excitement in the Craik community as we look at the past few years and forward to this year, and beyond! Our community is neatly situated along Louis Riel Trail (Highway 11) roughly half way between Regina and Saskatoon and is only a 40 minute drive from Moose Jaw making it easily accessible to all 3 major centres.
Craik was incorporated as a town in 1905 and has remained a strong, vibrant community throughout the years. Our school, our hospital, our RCMP depot, our business community, our neighborhoods have all been here for many many years and continue to be an integral part of our ‘home’ town.
Enthusiasm, a helping hand, community spirit, and friendship are what binds us all together to make Craik and surrounding area a great place to call home.
Craik Mayor David Ashdown and R.M. of Craik No. 222 Reeve Neil Dolman welcome you to our community, “The Friendliest Place by a Dam Site” and thank you for making Craik a holiday destination or your home!
Come Grow with Us!!
A bustling Economy
Agriculture has long been the driving force behind our local economy.
“Crop Production Services”, (formerly Viterra) has been in the community for many years reaching back to its days as the Sask Wheat Pool.
“Harvest Services” has been a mainstay in Craik as well for years manufacturing after market parts for combines and sells its products world-wide and employs a number of our local residents.
“Titan Clean Energy” is new to Craik and is doing ground-breaking work; the bio-refinery concept they have developed diverts waste from landfills, processes the waste into high quality products, and sequesters carbon though the production of biochar. This endeavor fits nicely into the mold we have developed for the community and is very exciting!
“Last Mountain Rail” and “Mobil Grain” have together reopened the rail line between Craik and Lumsden and have begun to ship grain cars on a line that has been closed for many years!
Exciting? You bet it is. And there is more to come and you could be a part of that excitement and growth!!
