Cedoux is an unincorporated community in the Rural Municipality of Wellington No. 97 in the province of Saskatchewan, Canada. It is held village status prior to July 21, 1913.[5] Cedoux is located on Highway 35, approximately 25 km (16 mi) north of the City of Weyburn and approximately 91 km (57 mi) southeast of Regina.

History[edit]

The colonization of the community of Cedoux, situated 15 miles north of Weyburn, began to form in 1902 with the arrival of a few Polish and Ukrainian settlers. The official date that Cedoux was named is unknown. It was believed at first to have been named the same time as Cedoux Post Office, April 1, 1905, but a receipt shows it as having possibly been named as early as July 9, 1904. Cedoux became a village on July 21, 1913.
