Springside is a great place to call home – you can enjoy the peace and serenity of small town life right along a major travel route. We continue to grow and prosper and welcome new residents and new business interests.
Springside has so much to offer. We are less than a 20-minute drive from the City of Yorkton, which has a wide array of stores and services.
We have easy access to the Good Spirit Provincial Park with all its summer and winter recreation opportunities. It’s a short trip to the Whitesand River, which has the Whitesand Regional Park alongside its shoreline and the Theodore Dam on the southern end of the lake. Both the lake and the river are home to some great fishing for walleye, perch and pike.
Our town hall was recently renovated and is a wonderful location for wedding dances, community meetings or family get-togethers.
The Springside Community Centre is our natural ice arena and as such is the hub of activity in the winter months.
Springside has businesses, clubs and organizations that can meet your needs and interests.
Other amenities include a school with Grades K-8, senior and low cost housing lodging, library and day care as well as a variety of business from plumbing, heating, electrical, building contractors and an auction house.
We are very proud of Springside – folks passing through often comment on how clean and tidy our town is.
Our Communities in Bloom committee and residents put much time and effort in keep our community beautiful.

Released on October 19, 2021
Starting October 25, the COVID-19 vaccination booster program will be expanded. COVID-19 boosters will be administered at least six months after the second dose was received for the following groups:
Those with the above underlying medical conditions, the Ministry of Health will be providing a letter to your physician or nurse practitioner for presentation at the point of immunization.
Immunization record will be confirmed at the clinic or pharmacy location to ensure that it has been at least six months since your last COVID-19 vaccination.
It is recommended that if you received two doses of a mRNA vaccine, your booster dose should be the same vaccine type. If you received two different vaccine types, your third dose should be the matching mRNA vaccine -- a full dose of the type of vaccine an individual received for their second dose will be given as a booster dose. If you received two doses of Astra Zeneca, it is recommended that you receive an mRNA vaccine booster immunization.
If you have already received a third dose for travel or in a long-term care or personal-care home setting, you do not require a fourth dose. The third dose already received provides the necessary increased protection; you do not need any further doses at this time.
The eligible populations announced today will be able to start booking their third doses online through the SHA Online Booking System, receiving the vaccine at clinics or through a pharmacy as of October 25. These eligible groups will not be added to the online registration system, or be able to book an appointment at a clinic or pharmacy until that date.
Additional populations eligible for booster vaccinations will be announced in the coming weeks, once the populations announced today have received their third doses.
A list of those populations already eligible to receive third doses in Saskatchewan including residents 80 and older, is available at Saskatchewan.ca/covid-19.
Out of Province Patient Transfers
To date, the Saskatchewan Health Authority has transferred one intensive care patient to Ontario with two more in the process of transfer today. These transfers are the result of the prolonged period of high demand on Saskatchewan's ICUs which has an impact on the quality and availability of critical care. The number of transfers being scheduled for tomorrow is still being finalized.
The number of Saskatchewan patients out of province will be reported daily in the highlights report on the provincial COVID-19 dashboard on the Active Cases page.
Selection of patients for transport involves a number of factors. A clinical team performs a daily assessment of all patients and will carefully match each patient to an appropriate available bed. The team will also consider the local and overall system capacity at the time the assessments are being made. Patients selected for transfer will be those that are medically stable and appropriate for transfer. A highly skilled care team will accompany them throughout the duration of the transfer.
COVID-19 Summary for October 19, 2021:
Daily provincial COVID-19 statistics by age, date and geographic zones including active cases, recoveries, confirmed variants of concern and vaccination information can be found at www.saskatchewan.ca/covid19-cases.
Stick it to COVID - Get Your Vaccination
The Saskatchewan Health Authority is holding vaccination clinics throughout the province. Clinic locations and times are listed on the SHA website. Any changes to clinic hours and location will be updated online.
A map of pharmacies participating in COVID-19 vaccinations is available at www.saskatchewan.ca/covid19-pharmacies.
COVID-19 vaccinations are also available at most SHA operated flu shot clinics, so residents can receive both flu and COVID-19 vaccinations at the same time and location. The COVID-19 vaccinations can be booked using the same online flu shot appointment tool (www.4flu.ca) or by telephone at 1-833-SASKVAX (1-833-727-5829). If you need both a COVID and flu shot, only one appointment is needed. Health staff are trained to offer both vaccines to those eligible.
