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.

Pfizer shipments have resumed and the province of Saskatchewan will receive record high doses through the end of July.
Over 97,000 doses of Pfizer vaccine were received this week, with more than 180,000 expected over the next two weeks. The shipments are provided to pharmacies and SHA clinics across the province. While it has proven safe and effective to interchange mRNA vaccines for second dose, those between the ages of 12 and 17 and those seeking Pfizer as a second dose should seek vaccination clinics and appointments now.
Stick it to COVID Now
Because it takes two weeks from your second dose to achieve optimal protection, take a look ahead at where you plan to be for the long weekend, for back to school, and plan to get your vaccination. Delaying your vaccination plans only allow more time for potential community transmission. All COVID-19 vaccines approved for use in Canada have proven to be safe and effective against COVID-19, reducing severe illness and death. Pfizer and Modern mRNA vaccines can be used interchangeably to complete the two-vaccine dose series and being fully vaccinated means fewer COVID-19 cases in your community.
All Saskatchewan residents 12 years and older who have received their first dose of vaccine are now eligible to receive their second dose following a 28-day interval. Whether seeking your first or second dose, vaccination appointments can be booked through the Saskatchewan Health Authority online at www.saskatchewan.ca/COVID19 or by calling 1-833-SaskVax (1-833-727-5829). Street addresses and hours of operation for drive-thru and walk-in clinics are available at www.saskatchewan.ca/drive-thru-vax.
A map of participating pharmacies across the province is available at www.saskatchewan.ca/covid19-pharmacies. This online tool includes links to pharmacy booking websites and provides details on the vaccine brand being offered at each location.
