Introduction to the Archives
The Saskatchewan Archives serves as the provincial agency responsible for acquiring preserving and making available records of significance to the history of the Province of Saskatchewan. The Archives is home to a broad and diverse collection of records which include public documents created by governments ranging from the Territorial period to modern day as well as records from private citizens, businesses and institutions dating from the mid 19th century.
The Saskatchewan Archives Board, officially established in 1945, is a non-partisan agency situated at arms length from government. This unique placement has allowed the Archives to freely acquire records documenting all facets of provincial life. Together these collections provide a unique source of information which highlight Saskatchewan’s rich and varied history for all to experience and enjoy.
