Strathclair

Strathclair Branch

Strathclair is approximately 90 kilometres northwest of Brandon and is in the Rural Municipality of Yellowhead.

Early activity in the community centred on the Little Saskatchewan River and its valley. The post office was known as Strathclair Station when it first opened in 1886. The village became Glenforsa for a time before changing to its present name in 1915.

The Strathclair Arena is a year-round facility with wintertime activities, including skating, hockey and curling. The community hosts the Strathclair Agricultural Society Fair on the third Tuesday of July while ball tournaments, socials, weddings and a variety of other events also take place at the Arena.

The 
Strathclair Museum is situated on Main Street and was formerly the Canadian Pacific Rail station. The museum houses a myriad of the lives and times of the local pioneers. St. Georges Anglican Church and a replica blacksmith shop are also on-site.

Camping, swimming and water skiing can be enjoyed just five miles south of Strathclair at Salt Lake-Carlton Beach.

Strathclair Credit Union Society Ltd. was incorporated in 1944 and included branches in Strathclair, Shoal Lake and Oakburn. It merged with Sunrise Credit Union on January 1, 2019.
