About Our Community
Being situated on the Canadian National Railways mainline between Winnipeg, Manitoba and Saskatoon has provided significant advantage to the town of Ituna.
In addition, three provincial highways pass through the town ( #15, #52 and #310). These highways along with a network of primary and secondary grid roads provide access to larger centers and to recreation areas and parks across the province.
The cities of Melville and Yorkton, both less than one hour away along with Regina, 90 km southwest, offer additional facilities. As well, the scenic and historic town of Fort Qu'Appelle is a short 45 minute drive away. Fort Qu'Appelle and its valley are home to several recreation areas and lakes providing camping, boating, fishing , and golfing in the summer and downhill skiing in the winter. Approximately 80 minutes to the northeast, Good Spirit Provincial Park provides the same recreation

The Importance of Agriculture
The Town of Ituna, the Rural Municipality of Ituna Bon Accord #246 and the Rural Municipality of Tullymet #216 are largely sustained by agriculture, in the form of grain and cereal crops, livestock and hog operations.
The black soil (mainly Oxbow loam) and good moisture lend themselves to a variety of crops. Among those crops produced in the area are red spring wheat, barley, oats, rye, oil seeds (canola and flax); specialty crops such as lentils, peas and canary seed. Beef cattle are the predominant livestock and hay production is also valuable.
Ituna is served by grain handler, Viterra. As well, numerous trucking services are available to take products to market.
