Saskatchewan Research Network Incorporated (SRNet) is a research and education network providing networking service for educators and researchers in the province of Saskatchewan, Canada. It is a not-for-profit member of Canada's Advanced Network Alliance, which provides dedicated high speed network access to institutions and companies that use it for research and education activities. SRNet also provides members access to CANARIE, a dedicated network that links similar research networks. The network also interconnects high performance computing resources within the province.
Originally established in the early 1980s as a network to connect the University of Saskatchewan and University of Regina library systems together; it later expanded to be part of NetNorth with interconnects with BETNet in the United States and EARN in Europe. In 1989 the organization evolved into the operator of Sask*net, providing Internet based access to research organizations in the Province.
In the past SRnet operated networking research laboratories in Saskatoon and Regina.
