Kindersley

 Kindersley, Sask, incorporated as a town in 1911, population 4678 (2011c), 4412 (2006c). The Town of Kindersley is located in west-central Saskatchewan, 200 km southwest of Saskatoon and 65 km east of the Alberta border. The town quickly developed into a service centre for the surrounding agricultural area after the CNR laid steel through the townsite in 1909. By 1911 it had a population more than 1000. Sir Robert Kindersley, a heavy stockholder in CNR at that time, was honoured by having the town named after him. Agriculture remains the most important element in Kindersley's economy; however, oil and natural gas wells north of the town have provided some diversification.
