The Canadian province of Saskatchewan first required its residents to register their motor vehicles and display licence plates in 1912. Plates are currently issued by Saskatchewan Government Insurance.

Passenger baseplates[edit]

1912 to 1976[edit]

In 1956, Canada, the United States and Mexico came to an agreement with the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators, the Automobile Manufacturers Association and the National Safety Council that standardized the size for licence plates for vehicles (except those for motorcycles) at 6 inches (15 cm) in height by 12 inches (30 cm) in width, with standardized mounting holes.[1] The 1954 (dated 1955) issue was the first Saskatchewan licence plate that complied with these standards.
