The Town of Porcupine Plain is located on Highway 23, in the Northeast Parkland adjacent to Greenwater Lake Provincial Park. Rich agricultural land, rolling hills, mixed forest, and numerous lakes make this one of the most beautiful areas in the Province!
Nestled within the Porcupine Provincial Forest, and just a short drive from Greenwater Lake Provincial Park, the Town of Porcupine Plain is a nature lover’s dream! While Porcupine Plain’s main industry is agriculture, the Town is also a four-season tourism destination. The Town offers ample opportunity to get outside and explore nature – enjoy a scenic hike or lounge on the beach at nearby Greenwater Lake; relish quality time with family and friends while quadding, fishing, and ice fishing; or take in the beautiful landscape while cross-country skiing. The area also boasts some of the best moose, elk, and whitetail deer hunting found anywhere! The local snowmobile club grooms over 100 miles of pristine snowmobile trails, which connect to the groomed trails of Hudson Bay, Kelvington, Lintlaw, and Greenwater Lake Provincial Park, for an unforgettable snowmobiling experience.
Porcupine Plain is truly Nature’s Gift!

Celebrating the Graduating Class of 2020
With Public Health Orders and several restrictions in place, Porcupine Plain graduation celebrations looked a little different this year. The graduating class was able to participate in a Grad Parade which took the impeccably dressed graduates all around Town. Friends and family watched from front lawns and waved and cheered as the graduates drove by — there were even a few cowbells being rung!
The celebrations continued with a “Reverse Parade”, where the graduates stationed themselves below their banners along McAllister Avenue (Main Street) and supporters drove by honking, waving, and cheering to show their support for this year’s graduating class.
An amazing Fireworks Show — sponsored by the Parkland Co-op, Town of Porcupine Plain, RM of Porcupine, and Porcupine Sports Days Committee — was the cherry on top of an incredibly touching tribute to the PPCS Graduating Class of 2020.
The Porcupine Plain Comprehensive School invites the community to celebrate the Graduating Class of 2020 with a socially distanced graduation “ceremony” on Friday, June 26, 2020. The schedule of events is as follows:
- Graduation Parade: The Graduation Parade will start at 6:20p.m., and will go past all in-town graduates’ homes. If you reside along the parade route, watch from your lawn and wave, make a sign, or make some noise! The parade route will be determined and announced. Please note that the Parade will not be going down Main Street, so please do not park along the street — it needs to remain clear for the Drive-By portion of the evening’s events.
- Main Street Drive-By: Between 7:00 and 8:00 p.m., the graduates will stand on Main Street under their banner. The community is asked to drive along Main Street honking, waving, and showing your support for the graduates. Please do not park or walk along Main Street for the duration of the Drive-By event.
- Fireworks: Fireworks Show will be at Dusk (after 10p.m.). Spectators are encouraged to watch from their home backyard or deck, but are welcome to attend at the Sports Grounds provided that they adhere to all parking and social distancing Guidelines posted. Tune in to 98.5 for accompanying music!
