Administrative history

The United Church of Canada was formed in 1925, from a union of the Congregational Union of Canada, the Methodist Church and 70% of the Presbyterian Church in Canada, along with a number of churches organized under the General Council of Local Union Churches (mostly in Western Canada). Saskatchewan Conference was one of eleven regional Conferences established by the United Church of Canada General Council, at their inaugural meeting, in June 1925. Initially, the Conference contained 16 presbyteries but this number varied, in the years that followed.

In January 2019, as part of a larger restructuring of the United Church of Canada, Saskatchewan Conference and its seven existing presbyteries were combined into a single entity, identified as Region 4.

Custodial history

The provenance of this series is not clear but the records were likely received between 1925 and 1986, while the Conference Archives was located at St. Andrew’s College, in Saskatoon. In 1982, Saskatchewan Conference signed an agreement to house their records with the Saskatchewan Archives Board (now Provincial Archives of Saskatchewan) and the collection was relocated, to the Saskatoon office of SAB.

Scope and content

Series consists of: official and printed copies the Records of Proceedings for the annual meetings of Saskatchewan Conference (1925-1980, 1983); reports presented (1965-1969, 1971-1974); a roll of members at the first Conference (1925); associated financial records (1938-1972), Conference programmes (1925-1952) and some newspaper clippings (photocopied).
