The Town of Maple Creek is ideally positioned along the Trans-Canada highway and the CPR mainline. It is centrally located an equal distance between the major urban centres of Saskatoon, Regina, Calgary, and Great Falls. It is approximately an hour from the regional centres of Medicine Hat and Swift Current.
A number of industries use Maple Creek as an important service centre including ranching, farming, oil and gas, and tourism. Located within Tourism Saskatchewan’s recently designated Cypress Hills Destination Area, tourism returns are a significant aspect of the community’s commercial sector.
Maple Creek offers its diverse population the less complicated lifestyle of a smaller community, while providing all the cultural and recreational amenities one would expect of a regional centre.
