Culture in Saskatchewan

Cultural expressions can come in many ways, including through creativity, innovation and celebration. In a province becoming increasingly more diverse and multicultural, we contribute to diversity while sharing unique aspects of individual heritage. Below is a list of a policy and acts that help provide guidance in the arts, multiculturalism, culture and creative industries in Saskatchewan.

Policy and Acts

The Arts Professions Act

This Act recognizes that the province's artists are professionals who are due fair compensation for their creative work and protection for themselves and their intellectual property. The Act mandates written contracts for all transactions involving good or services, which can range from a musical, theatrical or other performances to an exhibition of art work.

The Multiculturalism Act

A defining characteristic of Saskatchewan over the past century and a half and continuing today is the growing diversity of the population. This legislation, the first in Canada, encourages respect for the multicultural heritage of Saskatchewan and recognizes the benefits of a diverse, multicultural society.

Pride of Saskatchewan: A Policy Where Culture, Community and Commerce Meet

Cultural expression, including the province's built heritage, is part of everyday life. Artistic creativity and innovation in business are inspired by the cultural contribution to the economy, wellness and community. This policy represents the key areas of focus for the Government of Saskatchewan and guides decision-making at all levels as it relates to art, culture and creative industries.
