Yorkton’s Homecoming
Published in 1982

Coming Home in 1982

In May of 1882 colonization began in the area now known as Yorkton. Throughout the century that followed this event, our community has grown and prospered.

The City of Yorkton and the Yorkton Centennial and Canada Week Committee cordially invites you to share in our celebrations of “100 YEARS AS PIONEERS”.

The pioneering spirit and tradition of hospitality lives on in Yorkton. Whether returning home, or visiting our beautiful city for the first time, you will be treated to a variety of unique cultural experiences.

Many special events have been planned for this, our 100th Birthday.
