Golf Course: With the “Re-Open Saskatchewan Plan” the golf course is allowed to open May 15, 2020. HOWEVER, the Outdoor Individual Recreational Guidelines outlined in the Province’s plan must be followed. Council will be discussing this further at their May 16, 2020 meeting, but for now this will include the following “rules”:
- Groups over 10 are NOT permitted on the golf course
- Physical distancing MUST be maintained at all times; with a minimum of two meters between individuals
- Flags will remain in the hole and the cup will be elevated so the ball does not drop in the hole. Play is concluded when the ball contacts the cup. DO NOT TOUCH THE FLAG STICK.
- Don’t tee off until the people ahead of you are clear of the green
- Payments are to be made in the golf drop box outside of the Village Office, or by etransfer (see box above for info on etransfers)
- There will be NO scorecards, or pencils available
- The washroom at the Maintenance Building will be CLOSED
Message From Council - April 8, 2020
With the spring season upon us, and the unprecedented times we are living in, we would like to wish everyone good health and safety.
Council has made a couple of changes to help protect our citizens.
First, the playground is closed.
Secondly, the golf course, by provincial mandate, must remain closed.
Please respect these restrictions.
The public health authority has also recommended that if we do not have to travel that we stay home.
We have those in our village that have chosen to self isolate here, many due to being at increased risk. We all should respect this choice and limit any possibility of infection.
It is normal for each of us, when seeing friends that we perhaps have not been in contact with for an extended period of time, to want to visit and catch up. Please do not visit in groups or have close contact with anyone outside of those who live in the same household.
Wherever you are during this pandemic please follow the guidelines set out by the health authority.
If you show symptoms or have been out of the country, it is mandatory to isolate in your home for a period of at least 14 days.
For others, wash your hands often and practice social distancing.
It is councils wish that all remain healthy through this pandemic. Saskatchewan is the best place to be, both at times like this, and at all times. Please care for yourself and others.
If there are any other changes that affect our village, we will continue to inform you.

Resort Village of Mistusinne - recipient of the 2019 "Regional Cooperation"
Saskatchewan Municipal Award
The Resort Village of Mistusinne was recognized at the SUMA Convention, February 4, 2020 as a recipient of the “Regional Cooperation” Saskatchewan Municipal Award. Mayor Lloyd Montgomery and Administrator Yvonne Jess were in attendance to accept this award.
The Regional Cooperation award was for our participation in the Regional Asset Management and Group Learning project, along with the Villages of Broderick, Conquest, Elbow, Glenside, Kenaston, Loreburn, Strongfield, and Beechy, the Towns of Central Butte, Dundurn, and Hanley, and the R.M.’s of Loreburn and Fertile Valley. As a group we developed a regional cooperation framework to provide each municipal council with a plan to forecast asset replacement investments, to better understand revenue sources and suitability, and to communicate more effectively with community members around the state of municipal assets.
IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING AGGRESSIVE COYOTE PAIR - September 6, 2019
The Conservation Officer who is working out of Douglas Park has just informed the Resort Village of Mistusinne that they will be closing the Trans Canada Trail between Mistusinne and the Park campground due to the presence of a mated pair of territorial Coyotes that appear to be protecting their den. There will be signs posted at both gates but the Coyotes appear to be in the area around the first bluff of trees upon entering the park from Mistusinne.
There were two instances last weekend of Coyotes being aggressive towards dogs, one on the trail and one on the beach in the Park.
Please avoid the area, especially with dogs, for the next while.
