About Archives Archives Week
Archives Week

Archives Week is celebrated annually during the first week of February.

Saskatchewan's first Archives Week was celebrated in 2006.

Events featured during past Archives Weeks have included phone-ins shows on CBC Radio; celebrity reading events, evenings of films in archives across Saskatchewan or of archival value to the province, a screening of the 1973 Saskatchewan-made film Paperback Hero was an example.

The "Archives Pavilion" at the Saskatoon Heritage Festival has been a regular feature in Saskatoon, but other events in communities including Cut Knife,  Humboldt, LaRonge, Lloydminster, Melfort, North Battleford, Prince Albert, Regina, Shaunavon Swift Current, Wilcox and many more cover the entire province.

Archives Week will continue to be an annual event, celebrated during the first full week of February.
