Honouring Saskatchewan's pioneers

Over 150,000 pins will be distributed to seniors throughout the province.

The many people who built Saskatchewan's first century and continue to serve as an inspiration are being honoured as Saskatchewan begins its second century.

In appreciation for making Saskatchewan the province it is today, all Saskatchewan seniors will receive a centennial keepsake pin and card from Premier Lorne Calvert to remind them of our province's 100th anniversary celebrations.

Over 150,000 commemorative pins will be distributed to seniors across the province to acknowledge the contribution these residents have made in Saskatchewan 's rich past, and the guidance they have offered to youth across the province. The SaskTel Pioneers helped with the massive provincewide mailing.

“Our centennial year provides us with a chance to celebrate those who have had a significant influence on our province,” Hagel said. “Our provincial motto – from many peoples, strength – explains that who we are as a province is because of the incredible citizens who live here. Their contributions remind us just how much we love this place – Saskatchewan!”
