Wanuskewin Heritage Park (WHP) is a non-for-profit, charitable organization governed by a volunteer Board of Directors that consists of both Indigenous and non-Indigenous members. Six Directors are appointees representing municipal, provincial and federal governments, the University of Saskatchewan, the Meewasin Valley Authority and Federation of Saskatchewan Indigenous Nations. Up to seven more directors are appointed by WHP. WHP is a stand-alone entity under provincial government legislation as per the Wanuskewin Heritage Park Act, 1997. WHP has an Elder's Council that consists of representatives of the Indigenous cultures of Saskatchewan. The Elder’s council ensures that the direction, planning and continuity of Wanuskewin are aligned with oral tradition and authentic Indigenous cultural heritage. The WHP Board of Directors select a Chief Executive Officer responsible for the overall management and operation of the park.

WHP was purchased by the Meewasin Valley Authority in 1983. In 1984, the Province of Saskatchewan designated it a Provincial Heritage Property and in 1986 the Government of Canada designated it a National Historic Site. In June 1992, the Visitor Centre and trails were opened to the public and on June 27, 1992 the deed of land was officially transferred to WHP.

In the spring of 1910, when the sod was turned on the site of the present College Building, there was on the prairie but one clump of half a dozen poplars. The university of today, large, complex, handsome, is the result of human imagination – and money and work and the will to make it happen. To remember the prairie before the building began is a good way to recognize the importance of human agency in remaking our world. This essay is a brief account of the decisions that led to the building of the university of today.

University of Saskatchewan - Rutherford Rink√

  • 1928-19-?

The first major recreational facility on campus, “The Rink” was also the last major construction project completed before the combination of depression and war stopped all capital expansion. Designed by G.J.K. Verbeke, the rink was completed in 1929, at a cost of $47,000. Later renovations were made in 1980 and 1986.

Built on a site previously used for an open outdoor rink, construction of “The Rink” was due to student initiative. A campaign to have a closed rink facility began in 1920; by 1928, the Students Representative Council appointed a committee to look into the feasibility of the student body assuming responsibility for construction. The Board of Governors loaned SRC the funds; which the student council hoped to pay back by instituting a $3 student fee.

Although opened for use in December 1929 the rink, “already the most popular place on campus,” had its official opening on 23 January 1930, with an inter-varsity hockey game against the University of Manitoba (Saskatchewan won, 5-1). 650 attended the opening; and between 18-20,000 people used the rink during its first year of operation. The original design included “waiting rooms” on the west and east side, “primarily” for use by men and women respectively. The rink was used for general skating, “scrub,” faculty, senior men’s and girls’ varsity team hockey practices, the “fancy skating club,” children’s skating, and band practice. Speed skates were allowed, but the rink was “not responsible for injury resulting therefrom.” During general skating, “playing tag,” “cutting in,” “cracking the whip,” and “reckless disregard and abandon in speed skating” were not tolerated.

The building was renamed in honour of W.J. Rutherford, the University’s first Dean of Agriculture, whose “deep interest in everything pertaining to the well-being of his fellow citizens enabled him to render a service, not only to Agriculture and to Education, but to national affairs that has rarely been surpassed in this Province.” Rutherford’s sudden and unexpected death on 1 June 1930 was considered “a national loss.”

  • ca.1943–

Swift Current Pastoral Charge was formed after the union of Knox United Church and Metropolitan United Church, in Swift Current, Saskatchewan, in 1943. Prior to 1925, Knox had been a Presbyterian field and Metropolitan a Methodist field. After the founding of Grace United Church nearby, the earlier Swift Current church was renamed (by popular vote) to become First United Church, ca.1958. Pastoral charges similarly adopted the new names of these churches. On February 14, 1987, Rush Lake – Burnam – Neidpath Pastoral Charge (Cypress Hills Presbytery) was amalgamated into Swift Current First Pastoral Charge.
