Waiting for a breezeThe Resort Village of Kannata Valley is located on the north shoreline of the most southerly portion of Last Mountain Lake on the southerly portion of section 18, township 21, Range 21, West of the 2nd Meridian. The parcel of land was the homestead property of Charles Cowen, who came to Canada in the early 1880’s for a visit  and returned in 1884 to acquire a homestead.  The land that Charles chose for his homestead included a small piece of farm land that included the valley bank and lake shoreline of approximately 1.6 miles. The part of this land from midway down the valley wall to the shoreline is now incorporated as Resort Village of Kannata Valley.

The beach area on the Cowen farm was always a popular place to spend a Sunday afternoon at the lake. The popular places called Cowen’s Beach and Cook’s Beach were administered by the R.M. of Longlaketon No.219 until Sept 1, 1966 when the Village of Kannata Valley was incorporated under Saskatchewan Regulation 205/66. The designation from “Village” to “Resort Village” occurred in 1988 with registration completed in 2007.

Access to Kannata Valley is via a 1.5Km paved road (Highway 322-1) from highway 322 to the easterly portion of the Resort Village. The Resort Village of Saskatchewan Beach borders Kannata Valley to the west, Rock Ridge Development to the east and Valley Ridge Acres to the north. The Village of Silton, +/- 2 Km north and west of Kannata Valley is the closest neighbouring village with commercial services. The City of Regina is 50 kilometres to the South.

Kananta valley is residential resort community with cottages for seasonal use residents and homes, or four season cottages, for residents that live in the valley all year.  With the construction of permanent residences and the upgrade of existing cottages, property values have increased significantly each year making Kannata Valley property a very desirable holding. The amenities of the community include a paved road to your property, treated water to your house, a refuse transfer station and a lagoon for your waste materials. Those amenities along with the proximity to the City of Regina all contribute to making Kannata Valley the first class resort community that it is.

The population of Kannata Valley is 98 persons (2011 census). This number is an equivalent population of permanent residents and seasonal residents. There are 152 ratepayers that own all 177 lots .

Council would like to remind all residents that any new construction, demolition or property development requires a permit
Application forms are available at the village office. The application would go to the next council meeting for approval.
If approved, a permit would then be issued. Work cannot begin until a permit is issued.
