Corman Park Overview

Living in the country can be wonderful. There is more room between you and your neighbours. You are close to deer, small animals, birds and the natural environment. The changing seasons are at your door. For many people, it’s the only lifestyle they would ever choose.

If you are thinking of moving to the country for the 1st time, it’s important to know what to expect. Even if you have lived in the country before, every municipality is different.

Location
Corman Park is the most densely populated rural municipality in the Province. Its location surrounding the City of Saskatoon makes it the ideal location for the varied land uses that are established in the Municipality.

What to Expect in the R.M. of Corman Park’s Rural Environment
Corman Park is very diverse. The rural area of the Municipality is made up of agricultural land, country residential acreages, hamlets, recreation and industry. The following information is provided to help you make an educated and informed decision if you are thinking of purchasing or developing land in the Rural Municipality of Corman Park.

Agriculture is an important business in the R.M. of Corman Park. If you choose to live among the farms of our municipality, there are some aspects of your agribusiness neighbours’ activities that may occasionally affect you. Farm work may continue around the clock, especially during seeding and harvest time. Dairy operators sometimes milk without stopping, and hay is often cut or baled at night. It is possible that adjoining agricultural operations may occasionally disturb your peace and quiet.

Farming
Farming operations can cause dust, especially during windy and dry weather. Chemicals including fertilizers and herbicides are often used in growing crops. Some people are sensitive to these substances. Before buying land you should know whether it has noxious weeds, because as the owner, you will be required to control them.

Farm animals and their manure can cause odours. They can also be dangerous to people or pets. It is not safe to enter pens where animals are kept. You should not enter lands without the owner’s consent. Animals cannot be allowed to stray. It is the responsibility of every owner to make sure your livestock remain on your land.

Wildlife
Nature provides you with some wonderful neighbours. However, at times even apparently harmless wildlife can become too much of a good thing. Hunting provides recreational opportunities as well as a tool for managing wildlife populations. Many areas in Corman Park are open for hunting. For access to posted and unposted land please see the Wildlife Act for details.
