History

On 8 November 1915, "The Assiniboia Club of the University of Saskatchewan" was formed. Essentially a faculty-student discussion group, its initial stated purpose was the "study of foreign problems." Their constitution detailed the club's objectives more specifically: "to gain a more intimate knowledge of the various peoples settled in Western Canada," and to "make a thorough study of the factors which hinder the development of a true Canadian citizenship" with a view to the "betterment of general social conditions." The Assiniboia Club disbanded in 1917, "owing to the War having taken many of the club's most enthusiastic members, and those who might have become members."
