A resort village is a type of incorporated urban municipality in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan.[1] A resort village is created from an organized hamlet by the Minister of Municipal Affairs by ministerial order via section 51 of The Municipalities Act if the community has:

  • been an organized hamlet for three or more years;
  • a population of 100 or more;
  • 50 or more dwellings or businesses; and
  • a taxable assessment base that meets a prescribed minimum.[2]

Saskatchewan has 40 resort villages[1] that had a cumulative population of 4,118 and an average population of 103 in the 2011 Census.[3][4] Saskatchewan's largest and smallest resort villages are Candle Lake and the Lumsden Beach with populations of 765 and 10 respectively.[3][4]

A resort village council may request the Minister of Municipal Affairs to change its status to a town if the resort village has a population of 500 or more.[2]
