Historic and Vibrant Saskatchewan Community

For Residents

Located in Saskatchewan, Canada just 20 minutes from Saskatoon and John G. Diefenbaker International Airport, the Town of Langham – safe, clean and friendly – strives to maintain its small town atmosphere. Providing convenience in its location, the community offers an affordable place to raise a family, with quality educational facilities, new opportunities for development and quality infrastructure. Looking ahead, a positive future for Langham is about promoting and creating a community that people want to live in by continuing to enhance, support and provide opportunities for:

  • a strong basic business core;
  • proactive improvement plan for utilities;
  • attractive recreation, arts, cultural and social programming;
  • affordable, mixed housing with an emphasis on seniors housing;
  • a clean and attractive community; and
  • the provision of basic services.

The Town of Langham was first settled in 1904 with the construction of the primary CNR rail line running north west from Saskatoon to Edmonton, Alberta. As the surrounding land was settled for farming by various immigrant families, the town prospered. Located along a main highway and railway, several grain companies, farm equipment companies, and oil companies established businesses providing both local employment and much needed services. However as throughout most of Saskatchewan, people began migrating towards the cities as farms grew larger and the population of Langham, as well as its services, decreased.

In 1968, the #16 Yellowhead Highway was built with a direct line from Saskatoon to Langham on its way west. This reduced the travel time to the large urban center to only 20 minutes and attracted many people who wished to enjoy small-town living with the employment and services of the city to move to Langham. Primarily young professionals, trades peoples, and small businesses see this town as a good place to live and raise a family.

Statistically, the population has grown dramatically since the 1960’s to over 1933 (Sask Health 2019) with 70% of the population less than 50 years of age. Langham is a young vibrant community with a median age of 36 that has a lot to offer everyone including young families and seniors.

Our town offers a wide selection of local attractions such as Ag in Motion and Langham Days. Commonly seen as a recreational town, we have various summer and winter season activities and events.  We have an active minor hockey club, skating club, adult men's and women's hockey clubs.  We have proudly opened our brand new curling rink in March 2015 and boast men's, women's and open leagues.  The Langham and District Heritage Village & Museum is one of our local gems!  It provides the history of Langham and area from before Langham became a town to the present.

Langham is centrally located to several attractions in Saskatchewan. Only 250 kilometres from the beautiful Prince Albert National park many of our residents enjoy long weekend camping trips to Emma and Christopher Lake. Need to get some shopping done? Langham is located only four hours from West Edmonton Mall. The City of Saskatoon is only 20 minutes away and offers non-stop activities all year-round including Taste of Saskatchewan, Folk Fest, Saskatoon Ex and much, much more.
