The first census was taken in 1881 when Saskatchewan was still a part of the Northwest Territories. These records were taken again in 1891 and 1901. Only the 1881 census is available at the National Archives of Canada and on microfilm at the Family History Library in Salt Lake City. A special National Canadian War Registration Census was taken in 1940 during World War II (see Saskatchewan Military Records).
