Estevan is a small city of 11,000 in southeastern Saskatchewan, across the border from North Dakota. Home to the Estevan Coalfield along the Souris River, the city carries the nickname "Energy City." It's a title earned by major industries in the city including coal mining, power generation, and oil and gas. Like many cities in Western Canada, Estevan got its start when the Canadian Pacific Railway began construction across the prairies. The name Estevan actually comes from the cable name, or registered telegraphic address, of George Stephen, Canadian Pacific Railway's first president.
Now home to the Estevan Civic Auditorium, Estevan Motor Speedway, Souris Valley Aquatic Leisure Center, and Souris Valley Museum, Estevan has numerous activities to suit all tastes.
Plus, the city offers beautiful parklands, great opportunities for hunting and fishing, and the Estevan Farmers Market, where you can shop all things fresh, local and healthy.
