Welcome to Estevan

Estevan is the eighth-largest city in Saskatchewan, Canada. It is approximately 16 km north of the Canada–United States border. The Souris River runs by the city. The major industries in Estevan are coal mining, power generation, oil and gas.

The first settlers in what was to become Estevan arrived in 1892, along with the expansion of the Canadian Pacific Railway. It was incorporated as a village in 1899, and later became a town in 1906. On March 1, 1957, Estevan acquired the status of a city, which, in Saskatchewan terms, is any community of 5,000 or more.

The name origin is attributed to George Stephen’s registered telegraphic address, Estevan. George Stephen was the first President of the Canadian Pacific Railway from 1881 to 1888.
