Many Saskatchewan people know of La Ronge as a popular destination for wilderness experiences and outdoor activities, yet their community and environs remain relatively unknown.

Eighteen La Ronge area artists are excited to share a love of things that make La Ronge special. They invite us to get to know La Ronge a little better through this exhibit.

Passion for the Crown

A shared link to the Crown encourages us to share knowledge and passion for the Crown. Government House is pleased to partner with the Monarchist League of Canada– South Saskatchewan Branch and the United Empire Loyalists’ Association of Canada Saskatchewan Branch.

The South Saskatchewan Branch of the Monarchist League of Canada is a group of your friends and neighbours from across the province, united in their interest in and loyalty towards Canada’s constitutional monarchy. As an inclusive and outward-looking organization, the League is strengthened by the diverse backgrounds and experiences of its members. The Monarchist League of Canada promotes loyalty to and understanding of the Canadian Crown. The South Saskatchewan Branch was established in June of 1970.

The United Empire Loyalists’ Association of Canada (UELAC) Saskatchewan Branch consists of persons who have proven their Loyalist ancestry, those who are working on their proof, or those who support our goals and believe in the ideals of the UELAC. The United Empire Loyalists were those who had settled in the Thirteen Colonies at the outbreak of the American Revolution (1775-1783), who remained loyal to and took up the Royal Standard, and who settled in what is now Canada at the end of the war. Lord Dorchester’s Proclamation of 1789 accords all descendants of Loyalists to identify with ‘U.E.’ after their names.

"This exhibition brings together a selection of 18 paintings created in encaustic and a variety of mixed materials over the last 15 years. This is the result of my creative research on the prairies’ landscape motif...

...The creative journey is very much like a meander (méandre), being both challenging and rewarding. The narrative thread and emotional response toward these works belong to the viewer’s own experiences."  Anne Brochu Lambert

The photographs and documents in this display are examples of the many BCATP archival records preserved at the Provincial Archives of Saskatchewan.

The British Commonwealth Air Training Plan (BCATP) was established during the Second World War.  In Saskatchewan, there were 20 of these facilities in major cities and smaller outlying communities. View a teaser here.

The Archives is an essential source for both in-person and distance researchers. It has also been invaluable to Government House. Learn more about the Provincial Archives of Saskatchewan here.
