West Central Region, Saskatchewan

Go back in time to the place of ancient tipi rings and medicine wheels, major fur trade routes and the signing of the historical treaties between First Nations and the Government of Canada. Discover the heart of a rich heritage, from Métis culture and the first capital of the Northwest Territories, to the clash of forces in the North West Resistance.

Wanuskewin Heritage Park interprets 6,000 years of Plains Indian culture. North of Saskatoon, the history of the North West Resistance of 1885 is told at Batoche and Battleford National Historic Sites and Fort Carlton and Fort Pitt Provincial Historic Parks. Guided horseback riding trips, birdwatching, nature walks and more are favourite outdoor activities. Major urban centres include Saskatoon, Battlefords and Lloydminster.
