About the Village of Elbow

Elbow has most of the essential services you would expect to find in either a tourist destination or a place to call home. We have a voluntary fire department, first responders who work with the EMS programs nearby; we are also home to an RCMP detachment.

Anyone interested starting a business in a great location should consider Elbow. We are situated right on Lake Diefenbaker, which provides an endless supply of fresh water. We have lots of space, a low cost of living and we are situated just 1.5 hours from all of southern Saskatchewan's major centres. 

Elbow is a very active little community, with a census population of 341 neighbours and friends, and a great place to raise a family. Our seasonal population swells to 800+.
