World War I (1914-1918) and World War II (1939- 1945)

Canadian Expeditionary Force (CEF) service records are available through the Personnel Records Unit of the National Archives of Canada (see Saskatchewan Archives and Libraries for the address). These service records contain detailed information from enlistment to demobilization (discharge). Information may include each person's date and place of birth, address at time of enlistment, name and address of next of kin, marital status, occupation, personal description (eye and hair color, height, weight, distinctive marks or scars), and religion. When requesting information from the Personnel Records Unit, please include the person's name, rank, and regiment (where known).

The Saskatchewan Archives Board has lists of Saskatchewan volunteers and reservists (1914-1915), the nominal rolls of battalions of the Canadian Expeditionary Force and a list of soldiers from Saskatchewan who died in World War II.

A special National Canadian War Register Census was taken in 1940 during World War II. It is available from Statistics Canada, in Ottawa (see Saskatchewan Archives and Libraries.) Requests for copies of specific records may be sent to the Personnel Records Unit, Researcher Service Division of the National Archives of Canada.
