The town of Tisdale is Northeast Saskatchewan’s agricultural centre. Shopping, business and government services, education, sporting events, markets and concerts attract people from all over the Northeast region and beyond.

The post office was created in 1904. The community was originally known as “Doghide” after the Doghide River that flows through the town. But with the arrival of the railway, the community was renamed “Tisdale” in honour of F.W. Tisdale, an employee of the Canadian Northern Railway.
