Glen Ewen (2016 population: 154) is a village in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan within the Rural Municipality of Enniskillen No. 3 and Census Division No. 1. The village is located on the Canadian Pacific Railway just south of Provincial Highway 18. The towns of Carnduff and Oxbow are nearby.

The community was founded March 24, 1905 by a rail worker and Glen Ewen's first postmaster (Thomas Ewen). The town policy of tearing down any dwellings which have been vacated, combined with the current boom in the oilfield in this area, has resulted in a housing shortage for incoming workers. The school was closed in November, 1989, and now is the Glen Ewen Communiplex.

In 2011 the new Glen Ewen Hotel was opened, replacing the old hotel that had burned down in 2007.[5]

History[edit]

Glen Ewen incorporated as a village on March 24, 1904.[6]

In 1959, the now defunct Glen Ewen Eagles were among the four founding teams of the men's senior Big 6 Hockey League. They never won a championship.[7]
