Kindersley, Saskatchewan

Kindersley is a town in western Saskatchewan, Canada. Kindersley is located at Section 10, Township 29, Range 23, West of the 3rd Meridian It was incorporated in 1909, named after Sir Robert Kindersley who worked with CN Rail. The town's population has hovered around the 5000 mark for a number of years. Once it is able to sustain a population over this threshold, it will become eligible to apply for city status within the province. In 2004, an application for city status was refused by the provincial government Fact|date=February 2008, even with though Kindersley's current population of approximately 4,500 is greater than that of the City of Melville.

Kindersley hosts the Indoor Rodeo and annual Trade Show in June, and the Goose Festival and parade in September. Kindersley was chosen as the launch site for the da Vinci Project's Ansari X Prize qualifying flights in early October 2004, but the plans were scrapped.

Kindersley has three schools, all operated under the Sun West School Division. The local hockey team is known as the Kindersley Klippers, who play for the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League.
