2015 70th Anniversary Timeline

This virtual exhibit, exploring the history and development of the province’s archival repository, was created in 2015 to mark the 70th anniversary of the creation of the Provincial Archives of Saskatchewan, formerly known as the Saskatchewan Archives.  It ends with the passage of The Archives and Public Records Management Act and has not been updated since 2015.
