Welcome to Saskatchewan Historic Newspapers Online (SHNO)


The Saskatchewan Historic Newspapers Online collection has been created in collaboration between the Provincial Archives of Saskatchewan and Sask History Online (SHO). The project when completed will see the digitization of newspapers from all across Saskatchewan from 1878 through to the mid 1960s. The first stage of the project that you see here focuses upon Saskatchewan newspapers published during the Great War period, from January 1914 through to the end of hostilities in 1918. This initial stage will ultimately include the equivalent of approximately 400 reels of microfilm from nearly 100 communities, making up over 200,000 pages of newsprint. The collection includes newspapers from communities across the province which were published in English, French, German, and Ukrainian.

Questions and inquiries about the newspapers contained in this collection should be directed to the Provincial Archives of Saskatchewan via its Researcher Enquiry form at saskarchives.com.

Any comments or questions regarding the functionality of this website should be directed to Saskatchewan History Online.

Moving forward, SHO would like to involve the public to assist us in further enriching the descriptions and transcriptions of the collection. If you are interested in contributing in some way, please contact Craig Harkema, Digital Projects Librarian at the University Library, University of Saskatchewan.
