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.

Stick it to COVID:
Expanding Treatment Options
Released on January 18, 2022
On January 17, Health Canada approved the use of Paxlovid, a new antiviral drug made by Pfizer. This is the first Health Canada-approved oral antiviral (pill) for COVID-19, recommended for people who test positive and are at high risk of severe outcomes including hospitalization or death.
Paxlovid is taken twice a day for five days by those with COVID-19. It stops the virus from multiplying, to help people overcome the infection and potentially recover faster.
Saskatchewan expects to receive a shipment of Paxlovid this week. Quantities are expected to be limited at first and will increase throughout the year. Details on eligibility criteria and how to access this medication will be provided in the coming days.
Update to Monoclonal Antibody Treatment Eligibility
Saskatchewan offers monoclonal antibody treatment for eligible residents who have received a positive test result on either a rapid antigen test or a PCR test as a tool to help prevent serious COVID-19 outcomes.
You are eligible if you have a positive test result and:
Have not been vaccinated or are immunocompromised regardless of vaccination status; AND
Are within seven days of becoming symptomatic; AND
Are 55 years or older or 18 years and older with specific high-risk co-morbidity.
Previously, the requirement had been within five days of becoming symptomatic.
If you meet these requirements, you may be referred for treatment. Call HealthLine 811 or 306-766-6388 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., seven days a week to speak with a clinician regarding monoclonal antibodies.
Treatment is No Substitute for Vaccination
While Saskatchewan supports new treatments for those most at risk for severe COVID-19 illnesses, vaccination remains the best tool available to prevent hospitalizations and death due to COVID-19. Immunization does not offer absolute protection against COVID-19 but improves your body's defense against the virus. It is safe and effective.
All Saskatchewan residents age five and older are eligible to be fully vaccinated, and residents age eighteen and older are eligible for third/booster doses. Certain at-risk populations are now also eligible for fourth doses. For more information on the third/booster dose eligibility, see Saskatchewan.ca/covid-19.
There are more than 30,000 COVID-19 immunization appointments available through the Saskatchewan Health Authority clinics in addition to those offered by pharmacies throughout the province. Stick it to COVID and book your immunization today.
