Rosetown is a town located in west central Saskatchewan. It is a busy community as it is situated at the junction of Highways 4 and 7 (7 being one of the busiest highways in the province) and serves as a hub for the smaller communities in the surrounding area. The population is approximately 2,451 (2016 Census data).
Rosetown boasts a wide range of services, including health services, educational, businesses, recreational, service clubs and various other volunteer opportunities and social supports. Its main industry is agriculture. Individuals who are 65+ make up a large portion of the population. However, in recent years Rosetown has experienced an increase of young people moving back to the rural community they grew up in to raise their own families or who are new to the community. Through the growth and expansion of local thriving businesses, Rosetown is in a prime position to be creating new opportunities for residents of all ages.
