Custodial history

Records in the fonds were likely transferred to the archives between 1925 and 1986. Their original provenance is unclear.

From 1925 through to 1982, the official repository for Conference, Presbytery and local records of the United Church in Saskatchewan was at St. Andrew’s College (Saskatoon). In 1982, the Conference signed an agreement to house their records with the Saskatchewan Archives Board (later Provincial Archives of Saskatchewan), while still retaining ownership and management responsibilities. The collections were gradually relocated and continue to be stored with the Provincial Archives, to the present day.

Scope and content

The fonds consists of textual materials created by and relating to the Saskatchewan Conference of the Methodist Church in Canada, its Conference Secretaries and staff, as well as the Stationing Committee, and Wesley College Commission.

Contents include: original Conference minutes (1904-1925); reports; published minutes from Saskatchewan Conference (some as Assiniboia Conference) and predecessors, such as Manitoba and Northwest Conference; property records; education records; clippings and select publications; records of the Stationing Committee; treasurer’s reports; Conference Secretary’s correspondence; proceedings and related records and publications from the Conference-appointed Wesley College Commission (1918-1919).
