Sandy Bay

Wilderness, clean air, abundant wildlife, beautiful forests, and the ecological richness that is the heritage of those who reside on the Churchill River are all parts of the heritage of the residents of Sandy Bay.

Sandy Bay is situated at 'roads end' in the northeast area of north central Saskatchewan and occupies a land area that was occupied by Aboriginal peoples for hundreds of years before it became the site of a power generation source for mineral exploration and extraction. The Aboriginal settlement and economy of this hinterland community holds a fascination for the archaeological aspects of its location and the resource and economic activity that at one time engulfed it. Academics still earnestly study the domestic and social infrastructure of those living, or associated with the community and the effects of the harnessing of the power of the Churchill River upon which the community stands.

Sandy Bay is also 'Home' to many talented Aboriginals who have gone out into the larger cultural mosaic that is Canada. It enjoys a beauty and diversity that comes from its remoteness and richness springing from the hearts and culture of its residents. The Village is located quite close to the Manitoba border and economic and social ties to that province still are extensive.

We hope that through the photos on these WebPages you will discover why Sandy Bay is so loved by its residents both present and past.
