Kipling was named for the great English author, Rudyard Kipling, The Village of Kipling was incorporated into a Town on September 11th, 1909 and today is a thriving community of 1,100 people in Southeast Saskatchewan.
Nestled close to the Moose Mountain Provincial Park, 1.5 hours from the major centers of Estevan, Weyburn, Regina and Yorkton, we are in the middle of everywhere !!
Driving by we may appear to be just another small town in Saskatchewan. However, if you take the time to tour around you will see that we have many of the amenities that you would find in a larger center, but with the small town advantage!
Our community offers our residents a quiet life style with excellent job opportunities, suitable housing, health care, education and year round recreational fun & relaxation in wide open spaces while enjoying the fresh air. Kipling provides a large variety of trades and services to the region.
During the summer months our residents enjoy watching ball games, going for a dip in the pool that is located next to our campgrounds, a soak in the hot tub after a work out at our local gym or an afternoon of golf at our nine hole grass green course. In the winter you can cheer on a local hockey team, watch or join in on a curling game, or contemplate which of our figure skaters will become the next Rudy Swiegers.
Our visitors can have their picture taken in front of the Guinness World Records "World's Largest Paperclip" located in our beautiful Bell Park or take in the mural by Janet Blackstock located on the side of Balfour Drugs on the corner of 6th Ave and Main St . They can also visit our famous paperclip house at 503 Main Street, now known as The Paperclip Cottage and home of our tourist information center. Afterwards, take a stroll on our Heritage Walking Tour or visit our museum grounds and take a short trip out to view the Century old fully restored Bekevar Church.
Kipling is based on an agricultural economy of grain, livestock and mixed farms as well as an ever-increasingly strong oil exploration and service sector. The livestock industry boasts a large hog operation which is one of the world's leading companies conducting research on swine genetics. Kipling has increasingly become the center for health care and education in this region.
