About the SHNO Project

The Saskatchewan Historical Newspapers Online (SHNO) is a project developed in partnership between the Provincial Archives of Saskatchewan and Saskatchewan History Online to make available, over the web, the rich documentary heritage of Saskatchewan’s community newspapers.

When completed, the SHNO project will have digitized, described, and made available over 100 years of newspapers published from over 100 separate communities across the province. This will amount to approximately 11 million pages of newsprint.

This collection will serve as a invaluable resource to a wide spectrum of users, from educators to genealogists. The documentary heritage kept within these newspapers will provide a unique insight to the lives of the residents of this province.
