Community Futures across Alberta, Manitoba, and Saskatchewan provide many services including the ELEVATE Program. Over the course of the year, we will be highlighting all 56 offices.

On today’s blog we are featuring: Community Futures Meridian

Meridian is located in Kindersley, Saskatchewan. Kindersley is a community of more than 5,000 residents, located in the heart of west central Saskatchewan. Kindersley is as progressive today as when the first settlers appeared more than 100 years ago. The region depends on the oil sector and with the recent economic condition there have been many trials for families in their region.

Kindersley is located along Highway 7, the third most traveled highway in Saskatchewan, and a major east-west corridor linking Calgary and Saskatoon. Agriculture, oil and gas are the main industries, while retail and other business services cater to a surrounding population of more than 28,000 residents. Kindersley’s small-town atmosphere and community vitality make it a great location for people of any age to live, work and raise a family.
