Notice ...

  • Greek Orthodox Christians have a deep presence in eastern Saskatchewan, in the Canora and Yorkton region.
  • Anglicans may be described as a "diffuse minority" throughout the province.


  • The religious landscapes of Saskatchewan and Québec in 1921 could hardly have been more different.
  • The immigrant histories of Québec and Saskatchewan must likewise display strong contrasts.
