Lighthouses of Canada: Saskatchewan

Canada's prairie province of Saskatchewan has no officially maintained lighthouses. The province does have many lakes and reservoirs. Even though they are unofficial, the Directory lists lighthouses if they stand beside navigable water, have some plausible navigational value, and are active during the local boating season.

** Cochin
1989. Active (privately maintained); focal plane about 48 m (155 ft); flashing white light. 11.5 m (38 ft) hexagonal wood tower with lantern and gallery. Joyce Andre's photo is at right, Lighthouse Digest has a photo by Amy Chang, Michelle Paul has a 2012 photo, Natasha Starchief has an evening photo of the lighthouse in action, and Google has a street view and a satellite view. Built as a tourist attraction, the lighthouse overlooks both Cochin and Jackfish Lakes from the narrow isthmus between the two. It stands on Pirot Hill, a site donated by Don and Hilda Pirot. The lighthouse was restored and repainted in 2017. Located on SK 4 just north of Cochin, Saskatchewan. Site open, tower apparently open in season (details are needed). Owner/site manager: Village of Cochin.
