The Arden grain elevator stands next to the CP Minnedosa subdivision. It does not appear to be active. In May 2014, there was a sign on the elevator for the Wheat Belt Community Futures project, now known as Community Futures Westman.

At last report it was owned by the Rolling Acres Hutterite Colony.

The elevator has a capacity of 2,720 tonnes.

It appears to be two elevators, a larger central elevator flanked by an annex on one side and a smaller grain elevator on the other side, turned 90 degrees away from the normal orientation for an elevator. It is possible that the smaller elevator was a Lake of the Woods or Western Canada Flour Mills elevator, as both were present before 1940.
