Our History

The first Knights of Columbus council in Saskatchewan was formed in Regina on June 17, 1907, with 64 members. Since then the Knights have grown to more than 150 councils and more than 10,000 members. Included in these numbers are several French, Ukrainian and Filipino councils.

The Knights of Saskatchewan have been active in many worthwhile projects and activities. They are involved in their parishes, communities, and youth programs, support of vocations, education and health systems. Their involvement in community life is a record of outstanding benevolent achievement. During 2003 the Knights of Saskatchewan contributed more than 1.8 million dollars and more than 850,000 hours of volunteer service to charitable causes.
