Current FOSA projects include:

  • Regina Photo Project – helps upgrade the textual information documented in the Provincial Archives photographic collection.
  • 1885 Canadian Pacific Railway Telegraph Ledger Transcription Project – focuses on the transcription of handwritten telegrams to and from the war front during the final months of the 1885 North-West Resistance. Working from digital images of the telegrams, Friends from all over Saskatchewan and across the world can contribute to making this rich piece of history more accessible. 

  • The Saskatoon Outreach Photograph and Documents Project - locates interesting photographs and documents for use in various outreach projects. This includes photos that are unidentified or under-identified in the Provincial Archives collection.
