The Northern Village of Beauval is located in North-west Saskatchewan at the highway junction of Hwy 155 and 165. Beauval has a long history of being a transportation juncture in Northern Saskatchewan and has adapted as transportation methods have changed over the centuries, starting from portaging and the fur trade to automotive transportation today.
Under the Planning for Growth North Program, the Beauval has adopted a new Official Community Plan and Zoning Bylaw, which came into effect on December 1, 2015.
Press Release: Temporary Community Hall
On May 22, 2012 the Northern Pride Newspaper out of Meadow Lake reported on the Village's progress within the Planning for Growth program. The Northern Village of Beauval is in the final stages of the Official Community Plan and Zoning Bylaw adoption process. To celebrate this, and the opening of a temporary community hall, the Village hosted a resident gathering to introduce the revamped hall and promote the Community Planning Process. Communtiy planners from La Ronge attended the gathering and explained the products of the planning process (i.e., maps and planning process).
Congratulations Beauval residents on reaching this milestone!!
The Forks Economic Development Concept Plan: The Northern Village of Beauval is currently working with Nuguru Business and Marketing Consultants to develop an economic development concept plan for The Forks area of the municipality where the junction between Highways 155 and 165 connect.
PLEDCO Housing Study: Beauval is partnering with the Primrose Lake Economic Development Corporation to determine future housing needs for the community.

With the enhancement of economic development within the region, it is anticipated that additional mixed-housing types will be needed to accommodate and growing, and changing population.
