The Town of Lashburn is located on the Yellowhead Highway # 16, approximately 32 km east of Lloydminster between the scenic North Saskatchewan River and the Battle River. Agriculture and Oil are the leading economic base.
Lashburn is known as the “Home of the Bluebirds”, the senior ladies’ softball team. The Bluebirds represented Canada in the Canadian Dominion Softball Championship bringing home the bronze in 1975 and 1982, silver in 1976. The softball world of Lashburn is a scene of great activity every summer. We invite you to meet us at the ball park, either as a spectator or a ball player.
Lashburn’s beginning came with the settlement of some sixty to seventy persons in 1903-04. The C.N.R. came through in 1905 and many settlers filed on homesteads in this area. The Village of Lashburn was incorporated on December 8th, 1906 and became a Town on March 1st, 1979.
Our high school has received many awards in sports, academics, and student participation, which rates it one of the best in Saskatchewan. The elementary school offers a wheelchair accessible playground, French program for grades 1 – 6, resource teacher, librarian and five full-time teacher aids and two part-time teacher aids.
Lashburn is a small, growing town with friendly people. Come and join us in our activities and festivities.
