Introduction to the Archives

The Provincial Archives of Saskatchewan 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.  Officially established in 1945 as the Saskatchewan Archives Board, the name of the institution was changed to the Provincial Archives of Saskatchewan on August 24, 2015. The Archives is situated at arms length from government, allowing the independent acquisition of records documenting all facets of provincial life. Our Permanent Collection provides a unique source of information highlighting Saskatchewan’s rich and varied history.  Updates to all archival information on the site resulting from the name change are ongoing.
