Town of Bienfait Office
Open Monday - Friday 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. open over the lunch hour.
The Town of Bienfait has a population of 780 and is located approximately 12 km east of Estevan on Hwy 18. Coal mining has been a part of the community since its beginnings, and today many of Bienfait’s residents still work in the area’s coal mining operations. Many others, however, now work in the city of Estevan; for these people, Bienfait is in many ways a bedroom community. Agriculture, the oil and gas industry, and power generation contribute to a diversified economy and provide further employment. SaskPower’s Shand Power Station and Shand Greenhouse are located southwest of the town.
