Provincial Archives Of Saskatchewan Moving To Regina CBC Building

Released on February 27, 2019

The Provincial Archives of Saskatchewan is pleased to announce its new, consolidated location will be in the CBC Building in Wascana Centre in Regina.

All five current locations of the Provincial Archives of Saskatchewan will be consolidated to this space through an arrangement with CBC/Radio-Canada Saskatchewan in Regina.  The process of having the building ownership transferred from the CBC to the provincial government at no cost is underway.  As the CBC Building is based in Wascana Centre, the Provincial Capital Commission has approved the Provincial Archives as a tenant.   This new location is expected to open to the public in August 2019.

“I am pleased to announce this new location for the Provincial Archives of Saskatchewan,” Provincial Archivist Linda McIntyre said.  “This consolidated location will allow us to truly fulfil our mandate and our custodial role as keeper of the province’s documentary accounts.  We look forward to offering improved services to all of our clients as we begin this new chapter in the Provincial Archives’ history.”

The consolidation of the Provincial Archives of Saskatchewan to a single location is critical for the ongoing safety and preservation of historical records.  The new location will have all essential security and environmental measures in place, including necessary fire protection.  A single location will also eliminate the need to transfer records between facilities, reducing wear and tear on the records and avoiding the risk of damage or loss.

In addition to improved safeguards for the records, this new location will allow the Provincial Archives of Saskatchewan to enhance and expand the services it offers.  Once the new location opens, reference services will be offered five days a week (up from three days a week), outreach services will expand and public archival records, which have been awaiting transfer from government storage sites, will be moved to the provincial archives collection.
