ASQ Saskatchewan Section 0414 is one of many global sections of ASQ. Our section represents all of Saskatchewan. ASQ Saskatchewan was founded as a Subsection of ASQ in late 1993, and became a full Section on July 1, 1996.

During the year we host events that are relevant to Quality professionals and provide opportunities for members to get together and exchange ideas.
