With the two largest potash mines in Canada - Nutrien Rocanville and Mosaic Esterhazy - the potash mining industry in the area is strong and growing. These facilities have attracted billions of dollars in upgrades and expansions over the years, and their future remains bright.

Manufacturing has grown in the area in the last several years, with Vaderstad expanding its agriculture implement manufacturing plant at Langbank, IJACK developing an oilfield equipment manufacturing plant at Moosomin, and several companies in the area fabricating items for the mining industry.

The region has been home to continuous large scale projects over the past dozen years, including Red Lily Wind Farm, twinning of Trans-Canada Highway, a modern district hospital, multiple Potash Mine upgrades & expansions, Trans-Canada Pipeline, Enbridge Pipeline and the Parrish & Heimbecker Grain Terminal.

These ongoing construction projects help support a very robust hospitality industry, with the town hosting 3 national branded hotels, multiple motels and a host of restaurants including fast food, family and fine dining.

Average income is $103,000 per household, for a total regional income of $2.2 billion.

Before You Build


Incentive Program

The RM of Moosomin implanted a tax incentive to attract new commercial business to the Moosomin area in 2015.  The system is on a tiered system based on the assessment of the improvement (Building, structure) that is built by the business.  The exemption is based from the date of the first assessment on the improvements provided by the Saskatchewan Assessment Management Agency (SAMA).

Tier 1 – 0-1,000,000 in assessment equals 1 year of tax exemption

Tier 2- 1,000,001 – 5,000,000 in assessment equals 2 year of tax exemption

Tier 3- 5,000,001 – plus in assessment equals 3 year of tax exemption

Greater than 5,000,000- a negotiation with council would take place.

Having an incentive available for commercial development is a way to help offset the cost of construction that a new business is faced with by not having to pay property tax in their first full year of operation.
