When Wakaw was first established in 1911, 21 inhabitants sent a petition to the Department of Municipal Affairs, requesting for incorporation of Wakaw as a village. At that time, the village was at a different location, which was at Section 30, Township 42, Range 26 (West of the second Meridian). Later, the village moved to the current location. By 1 August 1953, Wakaw became a registered town.
The meaning of ‘Wakaw,’ is ‘Crooked.’ The name comes from the name of a nearby lake, Wakaw Lake. The first and primary settlers here were from East Europe. One prominent figure that made Wakaw his home is the Prime Minister John Diefenbaker. He launched his law office, which was the first one in this town that remained active between 1919 and 1925.
On its hundredth birthday in 2011, the town celebrated in a remarkable manner, with many fun activities. Presently, the population has grown to quite a decent number. There are approximately eight hundred cabins nearby Wakaw, some of which remain occupied through the whole year.
