Welcome to the Provincial Archives of Saskatchewan!  Discover our many services and online resources, visit our new Public Reading Room, or contact us as you determine new avenues for historical research through our ever-growing Permanent Collection.

As custodian of the documentary heritage of Saskatchewan, the Provincial Archives preserves and facilitates access to the public and private records in our Collection. Our many research tools and our archival descriptive database will guide you to the thousands of historical images, textual pages, audio recordings, films, maps and architectural drawings and documentary art that comprise the Collection in our care.

The digitization of our analogue material is a continuous and labour-intensive activity; visit us often to see what is new to the site.  Examine our themed exhibits, find out how to donate your records and try out the educational toolkits prepared for students and teachers studying Saskatchewan’s past. Our diverse and extensive resources help tell the story of Saskatchewan’s provincial and local government, First Nations and Métis communities, immigrant groups, landscapes, businesses, organizations, art, culture and history.  We invite you to discover the documentary heritage that answers your questions, adds new details to your family’s history and leads you in exciting new directions in your research. 

The Provincial Archives is particularly pleased to welcome you to our new location at 2440 Broad Street in Regina! Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there are public health measures and protocols in place in our public spaces and in our interactions with the public. However, we continue to offer in-person reference services through an appointment system and encourage you to call 306.787.4068 to consult an archivist about your projects.  For more information, visit our News and Events page.
