Borden, Sask, incorporated as a village in 1909, population 245 (2011c), 223 (2006c). The Village of Borden is located about 65 km northwest of Saskatoon. The village was originally named Baltimore but was renamed by the Canadian Northern Railway after Sir Frederick Borden. The railway reached Borden in 1906 and built a bridge over the North Saskatchewan River near there. Although no longer used, this bridge remains a landmark for travellers on the Yellowhead Highway between North Battleford and Saskatoon. Borden is a local service centre for the surrounding agricultural district as well as serving travellers using the Yellowhead Highway. The original site of the childhood home of John G. Diefenbaker, prime minister from 1957-63, a replica of his parents' homestead is a local attraction.
