The Legislative Assembly of Saskatchewan (French: Assemblée législative de la Saskatchewan) is the legislative chamber of the Saskatchewan Legislature in the province of Saskatchewan, Canada. Bills passed by the assembly are given royal assent by the lieutenant governor of Saskatchewan, in the name of the King in Right of Saskatchewan. The assembly meets at the Saskatchewan Legislative Building in Regina.
There are 61 constituencies in the province, which elect members of the Legislative Assembly (MLAs) to the Legislative Assembly. All are single-member districts, though the cities of Regina, Saskatoon and Moose Jaw were in the past represented through multi-member districts, with members elected through Block Voting.
The legislature has been unicameral since its establishment; there has never been a provincial upper house.
The current party standings in the assembly are as follows:
|New Democratic Party||14|
- Member in BOLD CAPS is the Premier of Saskatchewan.
- Members in bold are in the Cabinet of Saskatchewan.

In September 2013 the assembly established the position of Usher of the Black Rod. Their role is functionally similar to the one for the Senate of Canada. Rick Mantey was the first person to hold the office. The current Usher of the Black Rod, as of 2014, is Ben Walsh.
The Black Rod was made by Scott Olson Goldsmith of Regina.
