The Moose Jaw City Hall is home to the Moose Jaw City Council and is located at 228 Main Street North in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, Canada, and is designated as a municipal heritage property. The building was originally designed and built by the J. McDiarmid Company for the Government of Canada to house a post office, Royal Canadian Mounted Police station and other government offices.[1] In 1965 the building was sold by the federal government to the City of Moose Jaw and converted into a city hall.

Moose Jaw Police Service Headquarters is located in a building attached at the rear of the building.

Former City Hall[edit]

The city's first city hall was a Beaux Arts building built in 1904 at the southeast corner of 76 Fairford Street West and 1 Avenue NW in the area known as City Square and demolished with the Annex in the 1950s.[2] The site is now a parking lot next to Moose Jaw Police HQ and steps from the current City Hall at Fairford Street West and Main Street North.
