Parks Canada has issued an immediate evacuation order for Waterton Lakes National Park, including Waterton Park townsite, and all front-country and back-country trails, facilities, and areas as a result of significant public safety risk from the Kenow wildfire.

Please be advised that PCL Construction, on behalf of the City of Swift Current, will be performing a rehabilitation on the South Railway Street Bridge that will include removing and replacing the asphalt surface, installation of a waterproofing membrane, replacing expansion joints, and performing concrete repairs on the existing abutments, barriers, piers and deck.

The provincial government will be conducting a consultation survey on cannabis from Friday, September 8 to Friday, October 6.
