About the Buffalo Province History Conference
In 1904, Sir Frederick Haultain, the Northwest Territories’ first and only premier, had a dream: to unite the prairies into a single province called Buffalo. Building on that dream, the Buffalo Province History Conference seeks to bring together graduate students and faculty from Canada’s Prairie universities in a rigorous and collegial environment. Manitou Springs Resort and Mineral Spa ( is located in the centre of Buffalo province, one hour southeast of Saskatoon in the resort town of Manitou Beach.
