Happyland is a former provincial electoral division for the Legislative Assembly of the province of Saskatchewan, Canada. Centered on the town of Leader, Saskatchewan, this district was named after the Happyland rural municipality.

Created before the 4th Saskatchewan general election in 1917, this constituency was divided and combined with the districts of Kindersley (later Kerrobert-Kindersley) in the north and Maple Creek in the south before the 8th Saskatchewan general election in 1934. This area is now part of the constituencies of Cypress Hills and Kindersley.
