Administrative history

Custodial history

Most records in the fonds were transferred to the archives between 1925 and 1986. Their original provenance is unclear, though Conference administrative records may have come directly from office staff or committees. Some acquisitions were also noted in reports to Saskatchewan Conference annual meetings.

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), where they were managed by a designated Conference Archivist. 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

Fonds consists of textual and other materials generated by the Conference, the Conference Executive, Conference Staff and Conference Committee members in the fulfillment of their mandate, as outlined in The Manual of the United Church of Canada, from 1925 to 1983. Some records created prior to Union (1925) are also included in certain series, as noted.
