How to Use the Record

Record History

Official civil registration began in Saskatchewan in 1905. There are some marriages dating back to 1895. Again, please remember that records for the early years will be incomplete. The Vital Statistics Unit holds records that date somewhat earlier than 1905.

Homesteads granted to settlers were 160 acres of land, and required a $10.00 fee for the Letters Patent. Males 18 years or older, or a male or female head of a family, could apply.

Before receiving a title to the land, settlers had to file evidence to the Provincial Land Titles Office that they were British subjects by birth or naturalization. Dominion Land Acts set out provisions and options for lands regarding 'Pre-emption', 'proving' or purchasing a quarter section.

Why the Record Was Created

This collection was created to establish what lands had been sold to homesteaders and what lands were still available.

Record Reliability

These records are generally reliable.
