Historia

Saskatchewan Conference was one of 11 regional Conferences established by the United Church of Canada General Council, at their inaugural meeting, in June 1925. At its first meeting, in October, Saskatchewan Conference designated the Conference Archives, then located at St. Andrew's College (Saskatoon), as its official records repository and appointed the first Conference Archivist. The Archives remained at St. Andrew's College, through to the 1980s.

In 1982, the Conference signed an agreement to house the growing archival collections with the Saskatchewan Archives Board (later Provincial Archives of Saskatchewan), while still retaining ownership and management responsibilities for the records. The collections were gradually relocated and continue to be stored with the Provincial Archives, to the present day.
