Finding Vital Records in Sask

Saskatchewan Vital Statistics maintains a province-wide registration of births, marriages, and deaths.  A written application to the Director of Vital Statistics is required, using a  form that can be obtained from Vital Statistics, Saskatchewan Archives Board, or the Saskatchewan Genealogy Society.

The application requires you to show your relationship to the person whose record you want to obtain. If the person in question is living, you must obtain their consent.

Marriage registrations for the area now Saskatchewan began in 1878, birth and death registrations began in 1888. Until 1920, registrations were not always reported on a regular basis.   A fee may be applied to obtain information.
