Opening of the Second Session of the Twenty-Ninth Legislature

Released on October 27, 2021

Lieutenant Governor Russ Mirasty will formally open the Second Session of the Twenty-Ninth Legislature with the Speech from the Throne on October 27 in the Assembly Chamber of the Saskatchewan Legislative Building.

"The ceremonial aspects surrounding the opening of Legislature offer the people of Saskatchewan an opportunity to share in historic traditions and recognize the roots of our democracy," Mirasty said. "I encourage members of the public to join us outside to take part in today's ceremony."

The public is invited to the outdoor portion of the ceremony, which begins at 1:25 p.m. in front of the Legislative Building at 2405 Legislative Drive. The Lieutenant Governor will be greeted by Premier Scott Moe, followed by a Vice-Regal Salute, the inspection of a Canadian Forces Honour Guard and a 15 Gun Salute by 10th Field Regiment.

"The opening of our Legislative Assembly upholds parliamentary traditions that have taken place for more than a century," Moe said. "I am honoured to take part in this ceremony and I look forward to what we will accomplish in the session ahead."

The opening of the Legislative Assembly has taken place to mark each session since 1906, when representatives of the Legislature, the Executive and the Judiciary first gathered to hear Lieutenant Governor Amédée Forget acknowledge expressions of welcome into the Canadian Federation from Ottawa and the other provincial Legislatures.
