Administrative history

Scouting began in Saskatchewan informally in 1908 and formally in 1915. In the early years, Saskatchewan scouts operated within a regional framework, with three or four regions in the province. In 1958 the administrative structure changed to a council based system, which continues to provide the framework for operations of the organization today (2009).

Custodial history

The Boy Scouts of Canada, Saskatchewan Provincial Council, Regina donated the records in R-104 to the Regina office, Saskatchewan Archives in one accession in September 1970. No accession number was assigned. It is believed that the photographs in accession 1373 (Photo R) were also acquired from the donor at this same time. Ron McKetsy donated the records in R-E 785 to the Regina office, Saskatchewan Archives in one accession: R80-615 (October 3, 1980). Fred Wells donated a portion of the records in R-E 1906 to the Regina office, Saskatchewan Archives in one accession: R84-435 (October 2,1984). No accession information is known about the remainder of the records in R-E 1906 or the document contained in the Saskatoon pamphlet file G 210.1.
