Administrative history

Saskatoon was established as a village on November 16, 1901. The village council elected Don W. Garrison as overseer to administer the village's business. Saskatoon was incorporated as a town on July 1, 1903, with a mayor and six councillors elected July 10, 1903. On May 26, 1906, the City of Saskatoon was incorporated. The City Charter required that a mayor and eight aldermen be elected, and that a mayoral election be held annually. The Charter also provided for election by wards.
