Canwood, Saskatchewan is one of the rare towns that still has more than two grain elevators. In 2019 it still has three – one Cargill and two ex Saskatchewan Wheat Pool elevators.

The Cargill elevator appears to be a modern construction, probably in the early 1980s, with two steel bins for additional storage.

The ex Pool “B” elevator appears to be a former Searle elevator, based on the lettering above the driveway.
