On the TransCanada Yellowhead
Yorkton is located on the TransCanada Yellowhead Highway, near the eastern border of Saskatchewan. The Yellowhead crosses four provinces, providing a the most scenic and varied route across western Canada from Winnipeg to the Pacific Ocean.
At the crossroads of eastern Saskatchewan
Yorkton is at the cross-roads of three major highways. It is approximately halfway on the TransCanada Yellowhead between the major centres of Winnipeg, Manitoba, and Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, and is a convenient point for travellers to take a break for a meal, refreshments, or an overnight stay.
Highway 9, the Saskota Flyway, joins northern Saskatchewan with the U.S. cities of Minot and Bismarck, North Dakota and points south.
Highway 10 brings travellers from Regina, Saskatchewan's capital city, and continues east to Dauphin, Manitoba, and the popular Riding Mountain National Park.
