The South Saskatchewan Regiment originated as the 95th Regiment on July 3, 1905 with a headquarter in Regina. A Company and B Company of the 95th Regiment were designated the 60th Rifles of Canada during World War I. On August 6, 1914, troops from the 95th Saskatchewan Rifles and the 60th Rifles of Canada were placed on active service, contributing officers and other ranks to the 46th Battalion, Canadian Expeditionary Force (CEF), throughout World War I.
On March 15, 1920, the 95th Saskatchewan Rifles amalgamated with the 60th Rifles of Canada and was renamed the South Saskatchewan Regiment. In 1924, the South Saskatchewan Regiment was reorganized into: the Regina Rifles Regiment, the Assiniboia Regiment, the Weyburn Regiment, the Saskatchewan Border Regiment, and the South Saskatchewan Regiment. The South Saskatchewan Regiment was reorganized in 1936, with the amalgamation of the Weyburn Regiment and the Saskatchewan Border Regiment.
The South Saskatchewan Regiment was reorganized for active duty in September 1936 as the South Saskatchewan Regiment, CASF which embarked for Europe on December 16, 1940.
