Creighton Saskatchewan is a bustling community of nearly 2000 souls with a future assured by the gifts of geography and resources. The town's origins date to the time of early prospectors and mining development when people began to settle the area along a road that was constructed from Flin Flon Manitoba to nearby Amisk Lake. Like a few other communities in Northern Saskatchewan Creighton primarily owes its existence to the rich mineral deposits of Copper and zinc as well as other precious metals that were found in the area and extracted since the 1930's.

The earlier finds of these minerals at Flin Flon hastened the exploration for similar resources on the Saskatchewan side of the border but the biggest find seems to have been the natural beauty and resort and recreation potential on the Saskatchewan side of the border in the area surrounding Creighton. The community prides itself on its educational and recreational facilities and capacity to grow.

Although the mines have given many of the people of Creighton employment many others are actively employed in the business, service and tourist industries as well as government agencies and departments. Creighton is a core service community to many resort lakes in the area and the associated small communities that have developed in those spots.

A strong sense of community pride and friendly rivalry along with much co-operation with its Manitoba neighbour makes Creighton one of the larger and well-developed communities in the north. The residents of the town invite all who are inclined to come and visit and especially to stay if they find its active northern lifestyle to their liking.
