History

On March 22, 1913, residents in the Guernsey, Saskatchewan district met to discuss the organization of a rural telephone company. A petition requesting permission to organize was sent to the Minister of Telephones on August 23, 1913. The Guernsey Rural Telephone Company, Limited was incorporated as a joint-stock company on March 9, 1914. The company's aim was to construct, maintain and operate a rural telephone system.

The company included a board of directors, president, secretary and general members. The secretary was responsible for maintaining records and accounts, taking minutes, collecting fees and issuing receipts, preparing financial statements and acting as a liaison with the Department of Telephones and various rural municipalities.

On December 17, 1976, members voted in favor of accepting the Saskatchewan Telecommunications (SaskTel) offer to assume responsibility for the provision of telephone service in the area. The last meeting of the board was held on March 29, 1977. The company was assimilated by SaskTel on April 15, 1977 and dissolved on July 7, 1977.
