Milestone is a community of 700 people located 30 minutes from Regina and 30 minutes from Weyburn. Perfect for commuters, who want to be near the city and have the slow pace of small town living. It is a vibrant rural community that has managed to not only survive, but thrive.
Milestone is an extremely peaceful town, where children can walk to the swimming pool, friend’s house or corner store unattended. It is also a safe and friendly town where volunteers come together regularly to take on projects such as holding barbecues to raise money for our ambulance service and most recently holding Relay For Life to support the Canadian Cancer Society which we proudly raised over $71,000.
Milestone has an ambulance service that provides emergency medical service to the Town and surrounding areas. We have a seniors complex, with an assisted living program to assist residents with day trips, organize events and also organize trips to the city for shopping or doctors’ appointments. There are many young families in Milestone which has helped to keep our school population at the 200 mark for grades K to 12. These families keep their kids extremely active in programs from skating to swimming to baseball to volleyball, curling and soccer. There are also a whole host of extracurricular programs like piano, drama, dance, skating, hockey, etc. that Milestone’s residents can now be involved in year-around.
