Laura is a hamlet in Montrose Rural Municipality 315, Saskatchewan, Canada. It previously held the status of village until December 31, 1954 and again at an unknown date but was restructured back to hamlet status on December 28, 1978. The hamlet is located southwest of Saskatoon along Highway 7 and Canadian National Railway Saskatoon-Rosetown stub.
For a wonderful description of a youngster growing up in Laura during the period prior to and through the Great Depression, the book entitled "The Fledgling Years - A childhood on the Prairies" by William C. Macklon (publisher Western Producer Prairie Books, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, copyright 1990) is a delightful read. Prior to the Great Depression, Laura was a bustling active pioneer farming community.
