The Town of Lampman is located approximately 51 kms northeast of Estevan on Highway 361. Situated in the heart of the southeast corner of Saskatchewan, Lampman has a full range of businesses and services, many of which cater to the oilfield and agricultural industries which form the basis of the regional economy.
The Town of Lampman was named after Canadian poet, Archibald Lampman, who is regarded as Canada's finest 19th century English language poet. Lampman's poetry was best known for his ability to describe Canada's rural life and the wonders of nature. The first settlers arrived in the district in about 1890, and after 1900 there was a substantial influx of German-speaking people into the region. In 1913, Lampman became the junction of two rail lines as the track linking Regina to the Port of Northgate on the Canada-US border was completed.
With a recently renovated kindergarten to grade twelve school, as well as a playschool for ages three to four, the Town of Lampman provides a number of family oriented amenities for the area. The community complex, which has a skating rink, four-sheet curling rink and large kitchen, is located adjacent to our outdoor swimming pool, ball diamonds and campground, serves as a hub for year-round community activities.
Lampman also boasts an active volunteer fire and rescue service, as well as a volunteer ambulance service who take pride in serving the community and surrounding area. A modern health centre with doctor clinic hours, nursing home, and ambulance services available, along with low income housing units primarily for seniors.
A new residential sub-division is available to accommodate the growing community. Commercial property is also available for development.
