Trip Planner Canada  /  Saskatchewan  /  Melfort
Melfort is a small Canadian city in Saskatchewan, approximately 95km southeast of Prince Albert, 107mi northeast of Saskatoon and 174mi north of Regina.According to the World Gazetteer, its population as of 2004 was 5,400. Melfort became Saskatchewan's 12th city in 1980; although it had achieved the necessary 5,000 population a number of years earlier, residents were reluctant to give up their status as a town, and for a time, the town of Melfort was actually larger than the city of Melville.Melfort is called the "City of Northern Lights" due to the frequency with which the aurora borealis appears.This city is bordered by the Rural Municipality of Star City No. 428 and the Rural Municipality of Flett's Springs No. 429.It is also the administrative headquarters of the Peter Chapman Cree First Nation band government.HistoryJust 2km northwest of current location of Melfort settlers established themselves on the banks of Stoney Creek before relocation due to the surveying of the Canadian National Railway. Melfort was named to honour Mrs. Reginald Beatty (née Mary Campbell, 1856–1916), wife of one of the early settlers (1884). She was born on the Melfort estate, south of Oban, in Argyllshire, Scotland.
