Located in the heart of southeast Saskatchewan, at the junction of Hwys 13, 35 and 39 Weyburn is called “The Opportunity City”. With a rapidly growing population, Weyburn’s vibrant economy has created opportunities for people from all over the world to visit, live, and do business in Weyburn.
Weyburn is situated near the upper delta of the 470-mile (760 km) long Souris River. The Souris River continues southeast through North Dakota eventually meeting the Assiniboine River in Manitoba. In the 1800s this area was known as an extension of the Greater Yellow Grass Marsh. Extensive flood control programs have created reservoirs, parks and waterfowl centres along the Souris River Between 1988 to 1995, the Rafferty-Alameda Project was constructed to alleviate spring flooding problems created by the Souris River.
