The first edition of L’Eau vive, Saskatchewan’s only French-language weekly, is published

Its name comes from the French translation of the Cree word kisiskâciwanisîpiy, which means “swiftly-flowing river” and after which the province is named.

The newspaper is now only a newsletter published with the support of the Association culturelle franco-canadienne de la Saskatchewan.

After financial difficulties suspended publication of the print edition for five months, L’eau vive started up its presses again in March 2016. It also publishes an on-line edition.
