As a chapter of the Saskatchewan Archaeological Society, the Saskatchewan Association of Professional Archaeologists (SAPA) works to advance the development of the archaeological profession within the province. We do this by ensuring that our members act in a responsible and ethical manner towards heritage resources and the public. Additionally, SAPA works to maintain and encourage cooperation between our profession and the avocational community.
