About Rouleau » Profile
Rouleau is an oasis of trees, surrounded by crop, on the flattest part of the prairie that once cradled a prehistoric sea. Everyday we take in the vastness of the surrounding farmland shouldered by the historical Blue Hills. Every night, with the clarity that only Saskatchewan air can bring, we view the gleam of Regina lights to the northeast, Moose Jaw lights to the west and a brilliant display of the stars above. Rouleau residents benefit from urban-like amenities while retaining the aura of country living.
According to the 2016 Canadian Census, 540 people live in Rouleau. This is an increase of 19.2% in just 5 years. Although the bulk of our residents are in the 15 to 64 year range, 24% are kids under 15. It is because of our youth, that our town has so many amenities for children.
Rouleau children are raised in a street-safe environment. No matter where they live in town, they are just a few blocks away from Rouleau School. Our K -12 school has a low student to teacher ratio enabling our children to be able to excel at most everything that they do.
Rouleau children, and our adults too, benefit from having an active branch of the Palliser Library readily accessible on Main Street. Also on Main Street is the Community Hall, the Drop-In Centre, the Post Office and a variety of local businesses. Many other businesses and community services are located throughout the town. Check us out on Google Maps.
Ever since the filming of Corner Gas, from 2003 to 2008, Rouleau as also been referred to as Dog River. Although the original set has been removed, there is a walking tour to all the Corner Gas sites throughout the town.
Rouleau history is easily visible. There are many existing buildings dating back to the early 1900s throughout the town. Andrew King, Daryl 'Doc' Seaman, Ed Bahr, Bob Boyer, Keith Aulie, and Paul Nolan all names that have contributed to Canadian history, once walked these very streets.
And Rouleau continues to grow with an eye to the future. Over the past decade, most of the people who have moved into Rouleau came here without family connection. They came for the quality of life. There have been many new builds in town. There are currently two major projects being undertaken: 1) The Eastgate Landing Subdivision and 2) The Regional Water System Update which will see the whole town connected to a reverse osmosis water purification system by 2022.
