Saskatchewan Continues to Invest in Heritage Projects

Released on February 14, 2014

Saskatchewan Heritage Foundation Announces Grant Allocations during Heritage Week

Twenty-five projects preserving our province’s heritage will share in $258,000 through Saskatchewan Heritage Foundation grants.  Projects were chosen based on restoring heritage assets and promoting heritage conservation and range from $40,000 to revitalize the Melfort Post Office to $1,000 to restore the chimney of the CN Station in Eatonia Heritage Park.

The announcement comes as the Government of Saskatchewan proclaims February 16 to 22 as Heritage Week to celebrate and raise awareness of Saskatchewan’s heritage.

“Heritage Week reminds us that Saskatchewan has a diverse and exciting history,” Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Kevin Doherty said.  “Our government recognizes that while the future of Saskatchewan is bright, it is important to remember our past. Programs like Main Street, through heritage conservation and economic development, help communities revitalize their historic downtowns and ensure we preserve our stories and history for generations to come.”     

“Heritage Week is a chance for the people of Saskatchewan to celebrate the unique stories, traditions and places that make us who we are,” Heritage Saskatchewan President Kristin Enns-Kavanagh said.  “It’s a chance to recognize the powerful ways that heritage and culture bring communities together, creating a strong foundation from which to move toward the future.”

“The Saskatchewan Heritage Foundation is pleased to announce that over the past fiscal year we have invested more than $250,000 in 25 projects across the province,” Saskatchewan Heritage Foundation chair Wesley Moore said.  “The board was excited by the diversity of applicants this year.  One of the best parts of my job is discovering the innovative ways the foundation can partner with individuals, groups and businesses to make a real difference in our communities.”

The foundation has two partnership programs.  The Built Heritage Partnership Program helps communities sustain and restore their municipal and provincial heritage properties.  The  foundation’s other partnership, the On-Site Research Grant Program, invests in archaeological archaeological and palaeontological sites.  These programs are reviewed twice per year.  The next application deadline is March 15, 2014.  For more information, visit

Those who’d like to meet Saskatchewan Heritage Foundation staff in person can attend the Community Partnership Reception, which starts at 7 p.m. Thursday, February 20 at St. John’s Cathedral, 816 Spadina Crescent, Saskatoon.
