The R.M. of Duck Lake is located in the heart of one of the most important historical areas in Saskatchewan. Fort Carlton and Batoche are just a short drive away, and the monument commemorating the first shots fired in the Riel Rebellion is just minutes West of the town. The Town of Duck Lake is also home to the Duck Lake Regional Interpretive Centre, one of the finest museums in the province.
The RM of Duck Lake is not only rich in history, but boasts of some of the most scenic forest areas in the province with the Nisbet Provincial Forest in the centre of the RM. Abundant wildlife offers extra charm to the area. Prolific farmland and rich grazing pastures round out the region.
Duck Lake is a 45 minute drive from Saskatoon and 30 minute drive from Prince Albert, and almost all of this highway will be twinned by 2012. Just North of Prince Albert can be found some of the most beautiful lake country on the continent.
The Town of Duck Lake has much to offer with it’s brand new state of the art school, the small but bustling downtown area, Post Office, curling and skating rinks, youth drop in centre, first rate ball diamonds and the Duck Lake Regional Interpretive Centre. A clinic and pharmacy also serve the community.
Final Date for Assessment Appeals is May 10, 2013.
Flooding will likely be a big issue in the RM this spring. We are working on plans to ensure that most people have access to their homes, though it may be via a different road than usual.
