Yorkton is a growing city of 17,000 in the south-east of Saskatchewan, Canada, near the Manitoba border. It is a retail and service centre for more than 200,000 residents of the eastern part of the province, and western Manitoba. The city is famous for its Yorkton Short Film and Video Festival, held annually since 1947.
Getting to Yorkton is never a problem, not with three major highways crossing in the city. The TransCanada Yellowhead (Highway 16) spans four provinces, three time zones, and more than 3,000 kilometres of western Canadian scenery and sights.
The Saskota Flyway (Highway 9), known as the International Road to Adventure, takes you from Hudson Bay, Saskatchewan, all the way south to Bismarck, North Dakota, passing through northern forest, prairie parkland, vast stretches of wheat-production, parks and coal mining country.
Highway 10 is the main road to Regina, Saskatchewan's capital city. It also leads through historic Fort Qu'Appelle and the scenic Qu'Appelle Valley.
