Muscowequan (SK)

Dates of Operation
1889 -1997
Description
In 1886 the Roman Catholic day school on the Muscowequan Reserve in what is now Saskatchewan was enlarged to allow it to take in boarding students. The school was the subject of a number of negative Indian Affairs inspection reports in the 1920s. In 1923 a nurse said the building was not in fit shape and the diet served to the students was inadequate, lacking in milk and vegetables. The federal government took over administration of the school in 1969. From 1981 the school and residence was managed by the Muskowekwan Education Centre. It closed in 1997.
