Town of Porcupine Plain

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!

Congratulations Tarin!

Having to miss his own high school graduation ceremony  in Porcupine Plain on June 27th due to the NHL Draft in Las Vegas, Tarin Smith’s classmates opted to have a separate graduation parade on June 22nd to ensure that Tarin could be part of their celebrations.  In a show of
support and well wishes, Tarin’s classmates adorned Porcupine Blues jerseys and residents of Porcupine Plain watched the parade from their homes and workplaces, or along McAllister Avenue, to show their support and wish Tarin luck in the 2024 Draft.

Spending his time in the Western Hockey League with the Everett Silvertips, Tarin was picked by the Silvertips after putting up six goals and 34 points in 43 games with the Saskatoon Blazers (U18 AAA), but was limited to only eight games in his WHL rookie season thanks to a shoulder injury that required surgery. He returned in 2023-2024 with eight goals and 44 points in 67 games, leading to Central Scouting ranking him 38th heading into the NHL Draft; among Silvertip skaters, Smith ranked eighth in points and first among defensemen.

It looks like all his hard work paid off because, in the 2024 NHL Draft, Tarin Smith was selected in the third round, 79th overall, by the Anaheim Ducks!  The community of Porcupine Plain extends its heartfelt congratulations to Tarin. This remarkable achievement reflects his dedication, talent, and hard work.  The entire town is proud of his accomplishment and looks forward to cheering him on as he embarks on this exciting new chapter in his hockey career.

CAUTION – YOU’RE IN BEAR COUNTRY!

The Porcupine Plain Comprehensive School Sr. Boy’s Bears Basketball team worked their tails off all season and, this year, were ranked #1 in Saskatchewan! While SHSAA cancelled Hoopla (Saskatchewan’s high school basketball championship), the association held a one-day provincial basketball championship in Moose Jaw on Saturday, March 23rd for teams that had qualified for Hoopla.

Spearheaded by Johnston Agencies, businesses showed their Bears Pride by hanging posters in storefront windows. And, on March 22nd, residents lined Main Street wearing blue and yellow, and holding Go Bears posters, to cheer on the boys as they departed town, led in a small parade by RCMP, EMS and the Fire Department.

Porcupine Plain played at 5:15p.m. at Vanier in Moose Jaw. The battle was extremely close, with the Bears ultimately losing 87-85, earning Silver at the provincial championship.  The Sr. Boys Basketball team played their hearts out and our community is bursting with pride for their achievements.
