About the Archives

Since its creation in 1945, the Provincial Archives of Saskatchewan has served as custodian of the documentary heritage of the province. The Archives collects records of long-term value, as well as records of individuals, organizations, businesses and associations. The preservation of these records ensures that documentary evidence is available to researchers now and into the future.

As the provincial archival repository, the Archives is the source for both in-person and distance research into family history, government policy and accountability, educational history, past eras, business and social organizations, land settlement, local history, geographic places, cultural developments, human rights, community events and provincial celebrations.

The Archives enables the Government of Saskatchewan to fulfill its public trust by preserving and providing access to its official record, while also providing expertise and advice to government about information management, policy standards and the development of accountable record keeping practices in the public sector.
