Military Records

Library and Archives Canada (LAC) is the primary source for Canadian military personnel records.  LAC has made many of their indexes and sources available online at http://www.collectionscanada.gc.ca/genealogy/022-909-e.html.  Records at Library and Archives Canada include pre-First World War records, First World War records (1914-1918), and post-First World War records including records from the Second World War (1939-1945).

Although official military records are only available from LAC, the Saskatchewan Archives has some records which pertain to Saskatchewan servicemen:

  • Records of the Department of Public Works contain nominal rolls of the Canadian Expeditionary Force in the First World War. The names are arranged by battalion; there is no name index to the entire collection.  However, there is an alphabetical listing of those from Saskatchewan who died in the First World War and the Second World War.
  • Collections of the Regina Rifle Regiment, and the Royal Canadian Legion, the British Empire Service League, and the Saskatchewan Provincial Command may contain biographical information on service men and women.
  • The Saskatchewan Archives’ Collection also includes a wide variety of photographs, reminiscences, and personal papers related to Saskatchewan men and women who served in military roles.
