The water restrictions are now lifted.
Please continue to use water responsibly, as we are bringing the new Water Treatment Plant online while the old Water Treatment Plant tries to keep up with water usage.
In February, Canadian Tire Corporation announced an additional $12 million commitment to Jumpstart’s Sport Relief Fund to help sport and recreation organizations build back sport and play in Canada.
Jumpstart conducted a State of Sport study via Ipsos which revealed the pandemic has not only impacted current access to sport and play but has real long-term effects as well. The Town of Waldheim and the communities it serves have experienced the impact of the pandemic first-hand.
We recently received confirmation that we are amongst over 500 sport and recreation organizations nationally to be provided with grant support through the latest round of Jumpstart’s Sport Relief Fund. In 2021, Jumpstart has already disbursed over $9 million in funding to more than 800 organizations across Canada through Jumpstart’s Sport Relief Fund. We are beyond grateful to receive this news and know the positive impact it will have on sport and recreation organizations, and ultimately, on kids across the country.
With Jumpstart’s support, we’ll be able to offer safe, fun recreational sports programs to more youth in the community throughout the year.
Thanks to funding from the Saskatchewan Parks and Recreation Association and Sask Lotteries, we have purchased 9 sets of junior golf clubs. These clubs can be rented daily for $3, with pick up and drop off located at the Town Office.
Clubs range in size from 3 years to 13+ years, and we have both left and right handed clubs available in each size range. To book, fill out this form: Junior Golf Club Rental Form
Clubs are only available for use at Pineridge Golf Course. Please take good care of these clubs so that we can get many years of enjoyment from them, and all children and youth in our community have the opportunity to use them!
Spring has finally arrived, and many dog owners are out enjoying the warm weather with their pets. We would like to remind everyone of the bylaws regarding dogs in Waldheim.
- Pets are not allowed in Sam Wendland Park. This includes the new North section of the park. We are receiving many complaints about dog feces in the park, and on adjoining private property. You cannot walk your dog through the park, carry your dog through the park, or allow your dog off leash in the park. Bylaw No. 4-2015
- All dogs must be leashed when not on your property. Dogs not on a leash are considered running at large. Bylaw No. 1-2011 Section 4
- When walking your dog, you must clean up the defecation and dispose of it properly. Bagging the feces but then dropping the bag in the park, in a flowerbed or on the road is not acceptable and you can be fined for failure to clean up after your pet. Bylaw No. 1-2011 Section 8
- Fines for non-compliance: Bylaw No. 2-2020
- Dogs on a leash are currently allowed in certain areas of the Valley Regional Park (not on the golf course or the ball diamonds). However there have been too many people allowing their dogs to run off leash and this is resulting in dog feces on the greens and fairways. If this continues, the VRP will have no choice but to ban dogs from the park. Please be responsible, keep your dog on a leash and clean up after them!

Fall Activity Guidelines from saskatchewan.ca
Trick-or-treating is permitted with the following measures in place:
- Two metres distance must be maintained between individuals who are not in the same household/extended household at all times.
- No direct physical contact should occur between trick-or-treaters and people distributing Halloween treats.
- Participants should consider using tools (e.g. tongs) to distribute candy at a distance.
- Physical distancing must be used when approaching houses (i.e. wait until group ahead is gone, take turns). For houses or neighbourhoods anticipating a high volume of trick-or-treaters, people distributing candy are encouraged to place tape markers every two metres between doorways and sidewalks/driveways to promote physical distancing.
- Due to the number of people potentially touching the treats prior to being handed out, consider cleaning candy wrappers with disinfectant wipes or holding the treats for 72 hours before consuming.
- Only wrapped, store-bought treats should be distributed.
- Common touch areas (e.g. handrails, doorbells, doorknobs, etc.) should be frequently cleaned and disinfected while distributing candy.
- Trick-or-treaters should practise frequent hand hygiene by carrying portable hand sanitizer approved by Health Canada (DIN or NPN number).
- People distributing candy should practise frequent hand hygiene while handing out Halloween treats.
- Trick-or-treaters should consider incorporating non-medical masks (e.g. cloth or other materials) into their costumes, while ensuring their eyes are not covered for safety reasons.
- Individuals handing out candy should consider wearing non-medical masks (e.g. cloth or other materials) where two metres of physical distance cannot be maintained.
- Where possible, only one household member should hand out candy.
- Alternatives to trick-or-treating may be considered, such as:
- Costume viewing from windows/virtual/photos.
- Decorating households and yards for viewing from afar.
- A costume parade where physical distancing can be maintained.
