Ceci est un projet Canada 150 qui vise à faire découvrir des personnalités et lieux importants pour la communauté francophone de la Saskatchewan. Plus d'information : Géocachette CÉCS


The first Francophone settlers arrived in the Debden area around 1910. Most of them came from the Quebec's Eastern Townships and from the United States.

Prairie life at that time was not necessarily easy but the settlers were hard-working and they soon had a parish, a school, and a post office.

Today, many families in the region are of Francophone heritage or are proud Fransaskois. Debden is considered to be a bilingual community with several services and groups working for the benefit of Francophones. For example, the Comité culturel fransaskois de Debden promotes activities for the region's Francophones and Francophiles.

Debden and the surrounding area are recognized as one of the province's main tourist regions.

C’est vers 1910 que les premiers colons francophones s’installent dans la région de Debden. Ceux-ci viennent en grande majorité des Cantons de l’est au Québec et des États-Unis.

La vie n’est pas nécessairement facile dans les Prairies à cette époque mais les colons ont le cœur à l’ouvrage et se dotent d’une paroisse, une école et un bureau de poste assez rapidement.

Aujourd’hui, de nombreuses familles de la région sont soit de descendance francophone ou fiers fransaskois. Debden est considéré comme une communauté bilingue, où l’on retrouve plusieurs services et organismes travaillant pour les intérêts des francophones. Par exemple Comité culturel fransaskois de Debden veille à promouvoir des activités pour les francophones et francophiles de la région.

Debden et les environs sont reconnus comme étant un secteur touristique important de la province.
