Craik is a vibrant, progressive and friendly “small town” community located in the heart of the prairie grain belt in south central Saskatchewan. It was agriculture that brought settlers to the area in the early 1900’s and Craik was incorporated as a town on August 1,1907, well over 100 years ago!
Agriculture remains the driving force to the town’s economy but other industries are contributing as well to maintain a strong economic base.
Over the past 10 years Craik has grown in population after many years of declining numbers making it an exciting place to live, work and raise a family. In 2010 alone there were 5 new housing starts, a sign that the economy is moving forward and more people are making Craik their home!
The Craik and District Eco-Centre has brought great interest and notoriety to the community from all around the world. It utilizes the newest and most innovative principle of ecology and sustainability to lessen the “footprint” we have on our environment. With a beautiful 9 hole golf course located on the property and the Craik Regional Park nearby, it’s become a wonderful place to spend some some quality time with friends and family.
There is wealth of community business and opportunity to attact families to the community. The Craik School is vibrant and intragual part of our town where our youthful students from Kindergarden to Grad 12 get set for their own journey in life. Co-op has a large presence in town with a grocery store, a lumber yard, a gas station and employ a number of our citizens. Craik Hardware and Plumbing, CPS Farm Services, Royal Bank, Hospital, Harvest Services, McRae Farm Service, and many many more well-run businesess keep our town moving ahead, strong and prosperous. See our business guide section for more details on our local businesess.
