Frobisher (2016 population: ) is a village in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan within the Rural Municipality of Coalfields No. 4 and Census Division No. 1. It has an elevation of 576 metres (1891 feet) above sea level.

Frobisher is located along Highway 18, in the heart of south-east Saskatchewan's oil patch. Many pumpjacks and oil batteries are found in the area. Within the village, there are oil field related businesses, a post office, a restaurant/convenience store, and Frobisher United Church.

The original site plan for this village spelled the name as "Frobyshire." However, early railroad guides, maps and the Waghorn guide of 1905 spelled the name as "Frobisher." In 1923, the spelling change was officially enacted by the Department of Municipal Affairs in Regina. [Source:Frobyshire to Frobisher]
