Delmas is a hamlet in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan. Listed as a designated place by Statistics Canada, the hamlet had a population of 116 in the Canada 2006 Census.

In 1900 Father Henri Delmas, OMI was posted to the Thunderchild mission northwest of North Battleford. He and another priest filed side-by-side homestead quarters, and he established the St. Henri of Thunderchild residential school at the south end of his quarter. In 1901 when the Canadian Northern Railway built a siding near the school, it gave it the name Delmas. Source:Barry, Bill. People Places : Saskatchewan and Its Names
