Monday, Sept. 19, has been proclaimed a day in tribute and commemoration of the life of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by the Government of Saskatchewan.

While the day has been designated a federal holiday for federal employees, it has not been designated as a provincial public statutory holiday.

"Her late Majesty's seven decades of selfless public service is an honourable legacy," Premier Scott Moe said. "We will pay tribute to her incredible dedication and commemorate her 70-year reign in a memorial service in our capital city - the Queen City."

Books of condolence remain available at the Legislative Building, Government House and city halls in Regina and Saskatoon as well as on the website of the Lieutenant Governor of Saskatchewan.

A memorial service is scheduled for 7 p.m. on Monday at St. Paul's Anglican Cathedral in Regina. Flags will remain at half-mast for Her Majesty the Queen until sunset on that date.
