Today AM1190 was in Radville, Saskatchewan visiting some of the local businesses for our Spotlight on Radville! More info below VIDEO.

Radville is a small valley town in southern Saskatchewan with almost 900 people (860 in 2011). The town is in the rural municipality #38 of Laurier (incorporated December 13, 1909). It was incorporated in 1911 after being settled in 1895, named after Conrad Paquin. Radville has a large proportion of French-speaking people.

The population of Radville in 2006 was 755, up from 735 in 2001, according to Statistics Canada. Radville is part of the prairie boom town set in Southern Saskatchewan. Many pioneers set up homesteads with the encouragement of the Canadian government in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. At peak population in the early 1960s, Radville had approx 5000 residents. Throughout the 1970s and early 1980s, Radville's population was around 1000 people, and diminishing as better means of transport and lifestyle changes meant fewer people were interested in the small farm community lifestyle.

Saskatchewan Highway 28 and Highway 377 pass through Radville. Nearby, the village of Ceylon is 23 km, and the city of Weyburn is 51 km to the northeast. Other nearby communities include Lake Alma, Minton, Gladmar, Pangman, Ogema, Midale and the Port of Regway. These communities heavily support the Radville economy as it is the largest centre in the area.
