The name Tugaske is inspired by a Cree word and ever since the village was named by the CPR railway company, we have proudly heralded this "Good Land, Good Water, Good People". More recently nicknamed "Gateway to Lake Diefenbaker", Tugaske is located on highway 367 which provides a connection from Moose Jaw and Highway 2 for traffic heading to and from the Lake.
