Since inception in 1958 and to the present, Saskatoon Division focuses on the physical, social and economic welfare of our members and their families while actively contributing to our communities. Through our web site, we provide a conduit to members of our Division from B.C. to Ontario. We welcome members and guests to our meetings the second Tuesday of each month; you can find our meeting schedule posted on our web site. Geographically centered between Prince Albert Division to the North and Regina Division to the South, we work to enhance the Force’s presence in Saskatchewan.
