  • 1906-1925

The William Pearson Company, Limited was originally established in Winnipeg, Manitoba in 1906 with William Pearson as the majority shareholder, along with other investors forming the board of directors. The company registered offices in Saskatchewan under the Foreign Companies Act on March 31, 1906 and in Minnesota at a later date. The company's purpose was to acquire land or any interest in land, to make and give mortgages and deeds of security for land, to purchase real estate, and to buy or sell agricultural products. In Saskatchewan, the company's primary goal was to settle the Last Mountain Valley and Qu'Appelle with American settlers. Margaret E. Pearson, wife of William Pearson, transferred the land to the Company. During its operation in Saskatchewan, the company was alternately known as "Wm. Pearson Co., Ltd", "Wm. Pearson Company Limited", "Last Mountain Valley Land and Development Co.", and "Pearson, Son and Company."

Several poor crop years led the company to become in arrears on its taxes. By the mid-1920s, there was not enough land to continue the corporate registration, so the William Pearson Company was dissolved and struck off the register of joint stock companies in Saskatchewan on June 6, 1925. The company continued its operations in Manitoba and Minnesota until at least 1958 under the names William Pearson Company, Limited; Pearson, Son & Co.; and Middle West Land Company.

  • 1907-1972

The first meeting of the Lady Patronesses of the Regina Grey Nuns' Hospital occurred at the Regina Hospital in 1907. The purpose of the meeting was to form an auxiliary to assist the Sisters of Charity, Grey Nuns of Montreal in their work at the Regina Hospital (later renamed Grey Nuns' Hospital) and to create good public relations. The organization's first executive was comprised of Mrs. D. Murphy - president; Mrs. T.J. Bennett - secretary; and Mrs. T.J. Edwards - treasurer. The initial membership of the auxiliary was thirty-two. Meetings were held every two months at the homes of members or at the Grey Nuns' Hospital.

In its early history, the auxiliary organized fundraising projects such as quilting bees, card parties, teas, suppers, concerts, flower sales, fashion shows and tag days. Funds raised assisted the city's needy and helped furnish the hospital. Public relations were fostered through "Hospital Days" held every May 12th as an opportunity for the public to tour the hospital. The Patronesses also assisted the Sisters during the official opening of the hospital's cancer clinic on November 15, 1939, with donations of clothing, financial aid and time spent with patients.

Through the 1940s and 1950, the Patronesses continued their charitable work. The organization became a member of the Community Chest, with funds allotted from the Chest supporting the Patronesses occupational therapy program at the hospital. This program offered the opportunity for patients to work with leather goods and other handcrafts as a means of therapy. The Patronesses also focused additional funds to the children's ward. As well, they supported the war effort with the sale of War Savings Stamps, assistance with the Hostess Club for Soldiers and participation in Red Cross Drives. It was also during this period that the executive drafted its first constitution.

In the mid-1960s, the name of the organization was changed to Ladies' Auxiliary, Regina Grey Nuns' Hospital. The function and programs of the organization remained the same until 1972 when the South Saskatchewan Hospital Centre assumed responsibility of the Regina Grey Nuns' Hospital from the Sisters of Charity, and the hospital was renamed Pasqua Hospital.

The Saskatchewan Auxiliary Territorial Service was a non-profit organization in Regina, Saskatchewan incorporated under the provisions of the Benevolent Societies Act on November 1, 1940.

After the War ended, the club changed its focus and became a community service club. Its activities included donating money, clothing, toys, and recreational equipment to various organizations and visiting veterans and children at Regina hospitals and in Fort San, the sanitorium near Fort Qu'Appelle.

  • 1906-

The College of Physicians and Surgeons of the Province of Saskatchewan was established in 1906 as a corporate body under The Medical Profession Act (S.S. 1906, c. 28) to administer and oversee the registration, licensing and discipline of medical practitioners in Saskatchewan. All members in good standing of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of the North-West Territories were registered under the provisions of the new College. The College's first registrar was appointed by the Lieutenant Governor of Saskatchewan. A council of the College was comprised of one elected member from seven electoral districts within the province. Within the council, members annually elected a president, vice-president and an executive committee of at least three members. The council was responsible for the appointment of the registrar and of other members to carry out, through various committees, the provisions of the Act.

In January 1934, a special legislative committee appointed by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Saskatchewan and the Saskatchewan Medical Association examined the possibility of a merger between the two bodies for the purposes of conducting business with governments and professional bodies in other jurisdictions. The two bodies merged in September 1936 and adopted the name of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Saskatchewan; however, the former Saskatchewan Medical Association was renamed the Saskatchewan Division, Canadian Medical Association. Internally, each body maintained distinct and separate organizational structures, though many members served on committees for both. By the mid-1960s, the Saskatchewan Division looked to re-organize into an independent body and in October 1966, delegates at its annual meeting adopted a resolution to re-establish the Saskatchewan Medical Association.

The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Saskatchewan continues (2012) as a self-regulating body responsible for the licensing and discipline of medical practitioners and for developing and ensuring the standards of medical practice in Saskatchewan. Its council consists of twelve elected physicians, five non-medical members and the Dean of Medicine of the University of Saskatchewan or his/her designate. An executive committee is comprised of a president, vice-president, one non-medical member and two members elected at large. Members also serve on various committees established through the College's bylaws. The College's head office is located in Saskatoon.

In 2006, by a vote of its membership, the Regina Guild of Folk Arts Inc. changed its name to Regina Folk Festival Inc. and amended its name accordingly with the Government of Saskatchewan's corporate registry. Currently (2013), the organization is governed by a board of twelve directors. The board's executive consists of five directors.
