Saskatchewan is a very diverse mosaic of very many cultures and backgrounds.
There are some cultures and backgrounds to still be listed with their own individual Ethnic-Saskatchewan web page and their Saskatchewan home towns identified. There were differing waves of immigration to Saskatchewan and some cultures settled more prominently in Saskatchewan than others. This page is to give representation to any Saskatchewan ancestors not identified on their own Ethnic-Saskatchewan web page. If there is a lot of response for any culture, a new web page will be created for them.
Some countries of origin or ethnocultural backgrounds without an Ethnic-Saskatchewan web page at this time are:
Pakistani, Pakistan, Arab, Japan, Japanese, Egyptian, Egypt, Filipino, Filipines, Lebanese, Lebanon, Tibet, Tibetan, West Indian, West Indies, East Indian, East Indies, Portugal, Portugese, Yugoslavia.
Please e-mail to identify any cultures not listed or to add any links or information for Saskatchewan ancestors with roots from the above countries.
Please feel free to e-mail with any additional information, Saskatchewan ethnic placenames, comments or links etc in regards to ethnic settlements, history, schools, language etc in regards to Saskatchewan or historical Saskatchewan ethnic culture, and it will be added to the website.
