Saskatchewan History Magazine

Saskatchewan History, an historical magazine dedicated to encouraging readers and writers alike to explore the province’s history, was published by the Provincial Archives from 1948-2017. The magazine presented a colourful and provocative source of information and narration about Saskatchewan’s unique heritage.

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.

In addition, the magazine has regularly promoted, through photo essays, scholarly articles and general interest stories, features about the Provincial Archives’ diverse Permanent Collection and reports on heritage and archives news from around the province.

We hope that as readers, researchers, educators and students, you continue to explore the province’s history through the past publications of Saskatchewan History magazine.
