History[edit]

The land on which Erindale now sits was annexed over three decades: 1950 to 1959, 1970 to 1979, and 1980 to 1984.[2] The majority of residential construction was done between 1986 and 2001, with a small amount of construction before this. The housing stock is composed mostly of low density, single detached houses.[1] Roadways feature the names of local artists of some fame.[2] Father Robinson School was built starting in 1989, and opened in the fall of 1992.[4]

Government and politics[edit]

Erindale exists within the federal electoral district of Saskatoon—University. It is currently represented by Brad Trost of the Conservative Party of Canada, first elected in 2004 and re-elected in 2006, 2008, 2011 and 2015.[5]

Provincially, the area is within the constituency of Saskatoon Willowgrove. It is currently represented by Ken Cheveldayoff of the Saskatchewan Party, first elected in 2003.[6]

Commercial[edit]

Because of the adjacent University Heights Suburban Centre, there is almost no commercial development in Erindale. There is only one commercial building - a Mac's convenience store on the corner of Kenderdine Road and Kerr Road. 52 home-based businesses exist in the area.[1]

Location[edit]

Erindale is located within the University Heights Suburban Development Area. It is bounded by McOrmond Drive to the east, Kerr Road to the south, Berini Drive to the west, and 115th Street/Kenderdine Road/Attridge Drive/ to the north. Inside those boundaries, the roads are a mix of local and collector roads.
