From the Vaults - Saskatchewan Archives Week 2023

Released on February 7, 2023

Provincial Archives of Saskatchewan, along with archives across the province, celebrates Archives Week 2023 from February 5 to 11. This year the Provincial Archives will be showcasing some of the more unique and interesting records in the collection on social media.

"The rich history of our province will be on full display for everyone to engage with during Archives Week this year," SaskBuilds and Procurement Minister Lori Carr said.

For people who have not visited an archive, archival records may seem like mysterious secrets that are hidden in the dark under lock and key. This year's Archives Week social media campaign will shine the light on some of the more engaging items in our holdings.
