The population of the region primarily descends from German and Ukrainian immigrants that homesteaded in the area beginning in the 1890s. The wave of immigration was mostly complete by the beginning of the First World War.

Like much of rural Saskatchewan, residents here tend to be older than their urban counterparts. The median age in the RM is nine years older than that of the province as a whole.
