Message from the Provincial Archivist
Appointed by the Board of Directors under the terms and conditions of The Archives Act, 2004, the Provincial Archivist exercises the powers and performs the duties assigned by the Act and subject to the direction of the Board, is responsible for the general supervision and direction of institutional operations.
As Provincial Archivist of Saskatchewan, I am pleased to welcome visitors to our website to explore the contents of our wonderful Collection; to discover new avenues for historical, agency, family and personal research; to obtain details on our current activities, exhibits and events; and to find helpful information on accessing our facilities and services.
This website provides you with an opportunity to explore our digital records, tools and resources; in particular, to search the thousands of descriptions of our Collection for archival materials relevant to your research interests, to delve into the finding aids specific to public records and private donations and to see the many images, textual pages and audio files linked to these descriptions.
The extensive volume of our analogue Collection and limited institutional resources require a gradual approach to the digitization of material. However, new records will be added to the site as soon as they become available. This alone will compel you, we hope, to visit our site often and to discover the wealth of Saskatchewan’s history as it is brought to life ‘at your fingertips.’
Please also remember to visit us in-person should you wish to explore our Collection to its fullest extent. By distance or locally, we are happy to share with you the treasures in our Collection.
Linda McIntyre, Provincial Archivist
