Clavet (pronounced "cluh vet") is a village located in central Saskatchewan, Canada. It is located on the Yellowhead Highway, about 15 kilometres southeast of Saskatoon.

History[edit]

Originally established as French, Saskatchewan the name of the community was changed to Clavet on December 1, 1909.[1] Due to its low population level, in 1927 the village was dissolved, with administrative responsibilities transferred to the rural municipality of Blucher; it was not until 1964 that the population reached a point that permitted Clavet to become an organized municipality again.[2]

Services[edit]

In Clavet there is a motel (and bar), two gas stations and a school. The school is kindergarten to grade twelve and it is named after the town (Clavet School). Clavet is approx. 30 minutes away from downtown Saskatoon.
