Kindersley is the vibrant and progressive hub of west central Saskatchewan and has a population of approximately 5,400 (2016 Saskatchewan Health Covered Population). It is conveniently situated along Highway 7, the main corridor linking Saskatoon and Calgary, and the third most travelled highway in Saskatchewan. The community is surrounded by rich agricultural land and a thriving oil and gas industry, all of which contribute to Kindersley's strong economy and long-term sustainability.

Kindersley is home to a strong business and professional sector, and a broad base of services that rival communities more than twice its size.
