We are located in the heart of Saskatchewan lake country, serving the residents in and around Emma, Christopher, Anglin, and McPhee Lakes. The municipality is only 15 kilometers wide and 50 kilometers long, beginning at Christopher Lake and extending north to Timber Cove.
The western boundary is shared with Prince Albert National Park. It is a rural municipality in name only as the boundaries do not include any arable acres. It includes a collection of resort areas that surround the above mentioned lakes, as well as Elk Ridge Resort.
There were 884 residents, and 1,899 dwelling units in the District of Lakeland according to the 2011 census. In the summer we estimate that our population peaks between 20 and 30 thousand people when campers are included.
To keep our ratepayers informed during emergency events in our community, the District of Lakeland is providing the FREE mass emergency notification system "CodeRED". CodeRED is a high-speed emergency notification service provided by Emergency Communications Network.
