The Legislative Assembly of Saskatchewan is one of two components of the Legislature of Saskatchewan, the other being the Lieutenant Governor. The Legislature was unicameral from its establishment; there has never been a provincial upper house.

The Legislature meets at the Saskatchewan Legislative Building in Regina.

There are 58 ridings in the province which elect MLAs to the Legislative Assembly. All are single-member districts, though the cities of Regina, Saskatoon and Moose Jaw have been represented by multi-member constituencies in the past.

Officers

In September 2013 the Legislature established the position of Usher of the Black Rod.[1] Their role is functionally similar to the one for the Senate of Canada. Rick Mantey was the first person to hold the office. The current Usher of the Black Rod, as of 2014, is Ben Walsh.[2]
