Royal Canadian Air Force Station Yorkton (ADC ID: C-51) was a Long Range Radar (LRR) and Ground Air Transmitter Receiver (GATR) facility of the Pinetree Line. The site was SAGE compatible from day one.
The site was renamed to Canadian Forces Station or CFS Yorkton in 1967.
Construction was started in 1961.
Radar functions were operated by 46 Radar Squadron under the control of NORAD.
The station was operational from 1963-1986.
The White Spruce Youth Treatment Centre took over the site as a youth addiction facility up until 1998 and now is the site of Orcadia Youth Residence as a youth custody facility. A lot of the original buildings remain in good condition.
