The Legislative Assembly of Saskatchewan is one of two components of the Legislature of Saskatchewan, the other being the Lieutenant Governor of Saskatchewan. The Legislature has been unicameral since its establishment; there has never been a provincial upper house.
There are 61 ridings in the province which elect MLAs to the Legislative Assembly. All are single-member districts, though the cities of Regina, Saskatoon and Moose Jaw have been represented by multi-member constituencies in the past.
The current party standings in the legislature are as follows:
- Member in bold italic is the Premier of Saskatchewan.
- Members in bold are in the Cabinet of Saskatchewan.
- Members in italic are Legislative Secretaries to Cabinet Ministers.
- † Speaker of the Assembly

In September 2013 the Legislature established the position of Usher of the Black Rod. Their role is functionally similar to the one for the Senate of Canada. Rick Mantey was the first person to hold the office. The current Usher of the Black Rod, as of 2014, is Ben Walsh.
