The Saskatchewan Heritage Foundation Celebrates 30 Years

Released on November 25, 2021

The Saskatchewan Heritage Foundation is celebrating 30 years of promoting and supporting the conservation of heritage across Saskatchewan.

Established by the Government of Saskatchewan in 1991, the Foundation has made a significant impact upon the conservation of the province's heritage through its grant programs, publications, stewardship of heritage resources, and provision of advice to government on a range of heritage matters, including the naming of geographic features in the province.

"Our province has a rich and diverse history and the Saskatchewan Heritage Foundation plays an important role in how that history is preserved for future generations," Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Laura Ross said. "I would like to thank past and present board members and staff for their service to the province and for 30 years of helping the people of Saskatchewan conserve our heritage." 

"As we celebrate our 30th anniversary, we take pride in supporting the important preservation of our province's heritage and commend the individuals and groups who work to preserve the heritage that reflects our provincial personality and makes Saskatchewan a wonderful place to call home," Saskatchewan Heritage Foundation Chair Margaret Huntington said.

Recent projects funded by the Saskatchewan Heritage Foundation include:

  • The Yorkton Brick Flour Mill: Saskatchewan's last remaining brick flour mill and Yorkton's oldest industrial building.
  • The Waskesiu Service Station: It is currently named as the Lakewood Gas Bar and is one of the three full-service stations in the townsite, originally built by Texaco in the 1930s.
  • Humboldt Water Tower: Built in 1915, this is one of four lighthouse-style water towers remaining in the province.

To date more than $10 million in funding has been distributed by the Foundation. With most of its funds currently going to support the conservation of heritage buildings, 19 projects were funded in 2020-21, providing up to $49,000 for each grant.

This year, the province has provided a one-time boost in funding of $50,000 to the Foundation to help offset higher costs for building and construction materials during the pandemic.
