WELCOME TO THE WEBSITE OF THE RM OF DUCK LAKE 463
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, all of this highway is twinned!!. 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, first rate ball diamonds and the Duck Lake Regional Interpretive Centre. A clinic and pharmacy also serve the community, along with a grocery store, several restaurants and lounges, and a quilt shop.
Meetings are the second Wednesday of the month at 9:00 a.m. unless otherwise noted
WINTER WEIGHTS POSTPONED-FURTHER
Due to an unseasonably warm fall, the Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure is advising commercial vehicle operators that winter weight allowances will not come into effect until December 15 or until the roadbeds are sufficiently frozen.
PLEASE NOTE: The RM of Duck Lake will only pay for fire fighting services that are charged by our firefighters and their mutual aid partners as of October 14, 2015. If a ratepayer requires extra equipment such as water bombers and helicopters-especially those within the 5 km boundary surrounding the Forest Reserve, the payment of these fire fees is the responsibility of the ratepayer. Council strongly urges you to contact your insurance company to purchase extra insurance for fire fighting. Even some of teh "smaller" fires can run into costs in excess of $100,000-don't find yourself short at a time like this. Letters with this information have been mailed to every ratepayer.
