About this community

Elrose is a vibrant town nestled just north of the Coteau Hills, strategically positioned south of Rosetown and north of Swift Current along the intersection of Highway 4 and Highway 44. Rooted in agriculture, Elrose has emerged as a local focal point in the oil industry as well.

Before the advent of railroads, the area attracted homesteaders and settlers, situated along the historic Swift Current-Battleford Trail. Originally named LaBerge after prominent local landowner Albert LaBerge, the town underwent a renaming process after the railway's arrival in 1913. The name Elrose was ultimately chosen, though its exact origins remain shrouded in uncertainty.

Incorporated as a village in 1914, Elrose witnessed rapid development with the construction of schools, grain elevators, and the influx of settlers attracted by fertile lands conducive to agriculture. This growth culminated in town status being achieved in 1951.

Today, Elrose continues to evolve, embracing new opportunities in the burgeoning oil sector while sustaining a thriving agricultural economy. Recent years have seen an uptick in community growth, reflecting the town's resilience and adaptability.

As of 2021, Elrose is home to a population of 470 residents, residing in 207 of its 248 total private dwellings, symbolizing its status as a dynamic and progressive community in Saskatchewan.
