The small city of Weyburn is located in the southwestern area of Saskatchewan. It is located along the Souris River, about 110 kilometres or 68 miles southeast of Regina, the provincial capital, and 70 km or 43 miles north of the Canada-US border. The name is reputedly a corruption of the Scottish "wee burn," referring to a small creek. The city of Weyburn is surrounded by the Rural Municipality of Weyburn No. 67.
The Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) reached the future location of Weyburn from Brandon, Manitoba during the year 1892 and the Soo Line from North Portal on the US border during 1893. A post office opened during the year 1895 and a land office in 1899 in anticipation of the land rush that immediately ensued. Weyburn was constituted legally as a village during the year 1900, a town during the year 1903 and as a city during the year 1913.
The city of Weyburn had ever since become an important railroad town in Saskatchewan - the Pasqua branch or the Souris, Arcola, Regina, Weyburn CPR branch; whilst the Portal Section on the CPR / Soo Line; Weyburn, Moose Jaw, Lethbridge, Shaunavon CPR section; the Brandon, Marfield, Carlyle, Lampman, Willow Bunch, Radville section of the Canadian National Railway (CNR); and the Regina, Weyburn, Radville, Estevan, Northgate CNR area have all run through Weyburn.
Weyburn is situated near the upper delta of the 470-mile (760 km) long Souris River. The Souris River continues southeast through the state of North Dakota eventually meeting the Assiniboine River within Manitoba. During the 1800s this part was known as an extension of the Greater Yellow Grass Marsh. Extensive flood control programs have created parks, waterfowl centres and reservoirs along the Souris River. Between 1988 to 1995, the Rafferty-Alameda Project was built to be able to alleviate spring flooding issues caused by the Souris River.
In the nation, Weyburn is the largest inland grain gathering point with well over a half million tons of grain making its way through the Weyburn terminals every year. Gas and oil exploration make up the other key component of the economy.
The two radio stations within town, the CKRC-FM and CFSL radio stations, are both owned by Golden West Broadcasting.
Glacier Media Group publishes three newspapers for Weyburn and area: the Weyburn and Area Booster, the Weyburn This Week and the Weyburn Review.
