On August 1, 2013, Heritage Saskatchewan became responsible for the Heritage Fairs program, which has existed for 19 years in Saskatchewan.

Heritage Saskatchewan is the collective voice of those who value heritage.  Its advocacy efforts create awareness of the many aspects of heritage (built, cultural, multicultural, natural, military, archaeological, etc.) to ensure stewardship, preservation, research, education and engagement by all levels of government and all Saskatchewan citizens. 

The Heritage Fairs program is a dynamic, interdisciplinary, multi-media education initiative designed to encourage investigation into a local, Saskatchewan or Canadian hero, legend, milestone or achievement.  Saskatchewan students from grade 4 to 8 develop heritage fair projects in their classrooms.  The inquiry learning approach allows students to select topics that have meaning to them.

Work on Heritage Fair projects promotes academic excellence, creative thinking and inquiry learning.  Students compete in classroom or school heritage fairs and then advance through Regional Fairs to the Provincial Heritage Showcase.  In 2012/13, 2,369 students from 148 classrooms across the province developed Heritage Fair projects.
