Pasqua, Saskatchewan

Pasqua comes from the Cree word “paskwaw” meaning prairie. The Canadian Pacific Railway was built in 1893 through Pasqua, the same time a post office was established in the area. In 1903 a train station was built. At least one elevator operated in Pasqua, built around 1933-4. It was demolished some time between 1975 and 1995. In 1969 the post office closed. The existing train station is thought to have been moved to the hamlet from Truax.
