The Resort Village of South Lake is a thriving lakeside community situated on the south shore of Buffalo Pound Lake which is part of the Qu’Appelle Valley system. The Resort Village of South Lake was incorporated on January 1, 1989. Then on December 31, 2014, all properties located in the Organized Hamlet of Sand Point Beach were merged with the Resort Village of South Lake. As a result, the 2016 census revealed that our permanent population went from 48 to 169. The city of Moose Jaw is 30 km to the south and Regina is 100 km southeast which makes it an increasingly popular place for people to live either year round or seasonally.

The Village office is located at:
#6 – 1410 Caribou St. W. in the Regional Municipal Plaza.

Office hours:
Monday, Tuesday, & Wednesday from 9:00 am – 3:30 pm.

News & Notices


Please be advised the Resort Village of South Lake has issued a FIREBAN on all OPEN FIRES & FIREWORKS.

Contained, screened in fires are still allowed at this time, as long as they are continually supervised and have a water source readily available.

The dry situation will be monitored and may change in the future.

Loney’s Point

The maintenance personnel are putting the docks in at Loney’s Point today.  Residents do not require a launch pass.  All other users must buy a daily or seasonal use pass from the office or put money in the locked box on site and one will be mailed out to you.

Garbage update

Regular garbage pickup will be weekly starting Tuesday, April 27 until after Thanksgiving.

Please note that the red Loraas bins are for household garbage only.  We will be getting a few green Mr. Bin’s out starting this week and they will be located at each quonset.  Please be considerate of others when filling the bins, as they are for ALL residents.  Don’t fill them up with leaves and branches as these can be composted in your yard.  Recyclable items like tires can be taken to Quality Tire in Moose Jaw and any metal can be taken to Five Star Steel in Moose Jaw.  Please do not leave large items beside the bins and if they are full, wait until an empty bin shows up.

If you are doing any type of construction, you must obtain your own bin on your property.

We need every citizen counted!

By filling out your census questionnaire, you help shape your community and support important decision making that affects all Canadians.
