It’s Archives Week and throughout the province there are events to showcase the work done to preserve Saskatchewan’s history.

Wednesday evening in Regina, an event will take place event that will features 1885 dispatches to and from the war front.
Archives Week is celebrated annually during the first full week in February, and is organized by the Saskatchewan Council for Archives and Archivists.
“Remembering our past is important for present and future generations,” saus Mohr. “Over the past 11 years, Archives Week has provided the people of Saskatchewan a fun and informal way to look back on significant pieces of history relevant to our province.”
Other Archives Week events will take place in North Battleford, Saskatoon, Humboldt, La Ronge, St. Isidore de Bellevue, Whitewood, Lloydminster and Melfort.
Archives Week not only brings awareness to the significant contributions archivists make to our province, but also serves as a time for us to celebrate the history of Saskatchewan as a community.
