Most interesting USA perspective from Minnesota on forthcoming formation of Saskatchewan and it's very early history before becoming a Canadian Province in 1905.
On July 15 1870, Rupert's Land and the North-Western Territory were ceded to Canada, and became the North-West Territories; a small square of this was made into the province of Manitoba. On July 20 1871, British Columbia joined as a province.
The Provisional Districts of Alberta, Assiniboia, Athabasca, and Saskatchewan were districts of the Northwest Territories created in 1882. They were named provisional districts to distinguish them from the District of Keewatin which had a more autonomous relationship from the NWT administration. Then abolished with the creation of the provinces of Saskatchewan and Alberta in 1905.
