Saskatchewan History Magazine

The past comes to life on the pages of Saskatchewan History magazine!

Saskatchewan History is a historical magazine dedicated to encouraging readers and writers to explore the province's history. Published by the Saskatchewan Archives since 1948, the magazine has become a colourful and provocative source of information and narration about Saskatchewan's unique heritage.

The magazine is published twice a year, in the spring and the fall. Past issues have included articles on the fur trade era, pioneer life, ethnic groups and immigration, the history of medicine and medical care, business and trade unionism, religion on the prairies, women’s history, First Nations and Métis history, sports history, and many other facets of Saskatchewan’s fascinating past.

Saskatchewan History appeals to a wide audience because of its unique combination of general interest and scholarly articles, presented in a beautiful layout that showcases photographs and illustrations which document the history of the province and its citizens.  In addition, the magazine regularly includes features about the amazing records found in the Saskatchewan Archives’ Collection, and reports on heritage and archives news from around the province.
