For many years the Saskatchewan Government Telephones Head Office, after the provincial government entered the telephone business in 1908 with the purchase of the Saskatchewan assets of The Bell Telephone Company of Canada. The building served as the administrative offices for telephone operations in Saskatchewan until 1965.

The building is an excellent representation of the Stripped Classical Style common amongst public buildings of the post-World War I period. The building features the simplified entablature, engaged pilasters and symmetrically arranged window and floor plans typical of the building style and in keeping with the Telephone Department’s policy of constructing attractive buildings designed to create an image of strength, stability and functionality.
